We are developing with Kubernetes and came across an interesting issue where the resolver directive would not be applied properly when a DNS service name was inside a regex location. If we converted the DNS service to an IP then it would work. If we changed the regex location to a static location the resolver would work and find the DNS service IP correctly.

The following examples are what we had in the config for the location:

Did not work -

resolver valid=10s ipv6=off;
resolver_timeout 10s;

location ~* ^/esauth/($1) {
  proxy_pass http://bb-application/api/v1/proxy/$1

Worked -

resolver valid=10s ipv6=off;
resolver_timeout 10s;

location /esauth {
  proxy_pass http://bb-application/api/v1/proxy

Log from failed attempt:

2017-04-27T20:07:42.72470006Z 2017/04/27 20:07:42 [error] 7#7: *5 bb-application could not be resolved (3: Host not found),...

Sorry, the location that did not work has an error in it from our actual config.
It should read location ~* ^/esauth/(.*) {

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

Hostname in proxy_pass without variables is resolved on start-up using the resolver from libc, which has a notion of "short names relative to the local domain", or the search path.

Hostname in proxy_pass with variables uses nginx's resolver which needs full domain names.
