A feature that the configuration is depending on is now deprecated.

IST0101: ReferencedResourceNotFound

A resource being referenced does not exist.

IST0102: NamespaceNotInjected

A namespace is not enabled for Istio injection.

IST0103: PodMissingProxy

A pod is missing the Istio proxy.

IST0104: GatewayPortNotOnWorkload

Unhandled gateway port

IST0105: IstioProxyImageMismatch

The image of the Istio proxy running on the pod does not match the image defined in the injection configuration.

IST0106: SchemaValidationError

The resource has a schema validation error.

IST0107: MisplacedAnnotation

An Istio annotation is applied to the wrong kind of resource.

IST0108: UnknownAnnotation

An Istio annotation is not recognized for any kind of resource

IST0109: ConflictingMeshGatewayVirtualServiceHosts

Conflicting hosts on VirtualServices associated with mesh gateway

IST0110: ConflictingSidecarWorkloadSelectors

A Sidecar resource selects the same workloads as another Sidecar resource

IST0111: MultipleSidecarsWithoutWorkloadSelectors

IST0113: MTLSPolicyConflict

A DestinationRule and Policy are in conflict with regards to mTLS.

IST0116: DeploymentAssociatedToMultipleServices

The resulting pods of a service mesh deployment can't be associated with multiple services using the same port but different protocols.

IST0117: DeploymentRequiresServiceAssociated

The resulting pods of a service mesh deployment must be associated with at least one service.

IST0118: PortNameIsNotUnderNamingConvention

Port name is not under naming convention. Protocol detection is applied to the port.

A service registry in Mesh Networks is unknown

IST0127: NoMatchingWorkloadsFound

There aren't workloads matching the resource labels

IST0128: NoServerCertificateVerificationDestinationLevel

No caCertificates are set in DestinationRule, this results in no verification of presented server certificate.

IST0129: NoServerCertificateVerificationPortLevel

No caCertificates are set in DestinationRule, this results in no verification of presented server certificate for traffic to a given port.

IST0130: VirtualServiceUnreachableRule

A VirtualService rule match duplicates a match in a previous rule.

IST0132: VirtualServiceHostNotFoundInGateway

Host defined in VirtualService not found in Gateway.

IST0133: SchemaWarning

The resource has a schema validation warning.

IST0134: ServiceEntryAddressesRequired

IST0135: DeprecatedAnnotation

A resource is using a deprecated Istio annotation.

IST0136: AlphaAnnotation

An Istio annotation may not be suitable for production.

IST0137: DeploymentConflictingPorts

Two services selecting the same workload with the same targetPort MUST refer to the same port.

IST0138: GatewayDuplicateCertificate

Duplicate certificate in multiple gateways may cause 404s if clients re-use HTTP2 connections.

IST0139: InvalidWebhook

Webhook is invalid or references a control plane service that does not exist.

IST0140: IngressRouteRulesNotAffected

Route rules have no effect on ingress gateway requests

IST0141: InsufficientPermissions

IST0146: ImageAutoWithoutInjectionWarning

Deployments with `image: auto` should be targeted for injection.

IST0147: ImageAutoWithoutInjectionError

Pods with `image: auto` should be targeted for injection.

IST0148: NamespaceInjectionEnabledByDefault

user namespace should be injectable if Istio is installed with enableNamespacesByDefault enabled and neither injection label is set.

IST0149: JwtClaimBasedRoutingWithoutRequestAuthN

Virtual service using JWT claim based routing without request authentication.

IST0150: ExternalNameServiceTypeInvalidPortName

Proxy may prevent tcp named ports and unmatched traffic for ports serving TCP protocol from being forwarded correctly for ExternalName services.
