I am not deploying as a docker-compose .

Hello @gowtham,

Thank you for the interest in HiveMQ!

Typically in Kubernetes deployments, when a static address is needed for external requests, a load balancer service is implemented. This will allow static address assignment for this service, rather than having to utilize dynamic pod addresses. If a load balancer is outside of the scope of this deployment, an ingress service can be utilized as well.

Some details regarding load balancers are available here.
