# To use only Istio service mesh and no knative-local-gateway, replace
# all local-gateway.* entries by the following entry.
The configuration makes local traffic completely rely on mesh (virtual service).
And we are planning to deprecate the config with the following reasons:
- DomainMapping cannot enable `local-gateway.mesh` as discussed in https://github.com/knative-sandbox/net-istio/issues/562#issuecomment-809934621
- E2E test does not enable `local-gateway.mesh` (because domainmapping tests fail and mesh specific option for test is necessary.)
- mesh to mesh traffic has no difference between w/ and w/o `local-gateway.mesh`. The option is just to use only mesh and to completely remove the local gateway.
