You are browsing documentation for a version of Kuma that is not the latest release.

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 MeshCircuitBreaker
FaultInjection MeshFaultInjection
HealthCheck MeshHealthCheck
RateLimit MeshRateLimit
Retry MeshRetry
Timeout MeshTimeout
TrafficLog MeshAccessLog
TrafficMetrics N/A
TrafficPermissions MeshTrafficPermission
TrafficRoute MeshHTTPRoute
TrafficTrace MeshTrace
ProxyTemplate MeshProxyPatch

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