Enable external Load Balancer usage

Enabling the load balancer feature will allow users to expose applications they deploy over an external IP address assigned by Cloud provider.

Note: Ensure that your cloud provider allows you to create load balancers if you want to use this feature. Might incur costs.

Enabling usage of External Balancer

To do this, you need to open Portainer, go to Cluster and the to Setup. After that, you need to enable the toggle Allow users to use external load balancer.


After you enabled the toggle, scroll down and do a click in Save Configuration.

Starting now, when you create a resource pool, you can define an external load balancer quota.
