    Accessing a cluster

    To deploy applications, inspect and manage cluster resources, you need to use the Kubernetes command-line tool – kubectl (see the installation instructions).

    In order for kubectl to find and access a Kubernetes cluster, it needs a configuration file (kubeconfig file). Download the configuration file for your cluster from the "Kubernetes Cluster Details" page in the Customer Portal:

    Accessing a cluster

    Export KUBECONFIG environment variable with the path to the config file as a value:

    export KUBECONFIG=~/.kube/k8s_config_CLUSTER-NAME.yaml

    Check that kubectl is properly configured by getting the cluster state:

    kubectl cluster-info
