As of Konvoy 1.7, Kiali and Jaegar are split out from the Istio addon into their own default Konvoy addons.
To ensure they are disabled from Istio before enabling them as separate addons in Konvoy 1.7.0 or later, edit the istio-operator in the istio-system namespace:
kubectl edit istiooperator istio-default -n istio-system
Find the values for kiali and tracing, and change them from enabled: true to enabled: false.
Once these changes are saved, verify that the kiali and tracing pods are gone from the istio-system namespace:
kubectl get pods -n istio-system
You can then upgrade your Konvoy deployment to have istio, kiali, and jaeger deployed as separate addons.
