Here you can find the list of Policies that Kuma supports.

Going forward from version 2.0, Kuma is transitioning from source/destination policies to targetRef policies.

The following table shows the equivalence between source/destination and targetRef policies:

source/destination policy targetRef policy
CircuitBreaker N/A
FaultInjection N/A
HealthCheck N/A
RateLimit N/A
Retry N/A
Timeout N/A
TrafficLog MeshAccessLog
TrafficMetrics N/A
TrafficPermissions MeshTrafficPermission
TrafficRoute N/A
TrafficTrace MeshTrace

targetRef policies are still beta and it is therefore not supported to mix source/destination and targetRef policies together.
