Attach an existing Kubernetes cluster using kubeconfig

Attach Kubernetes Cluster

You can attach an existing cluster (whether it is a cluster created with the DKP CLI or by means of another platform) to DKP. At the time of attachment, certain namespaces are created on the cluster, and workspace platform applications are deployed automatically into the newly-created namespaces.

Review the Workspace Platform Application Configuration Requirements to ensure the attached cluster has sufficient resources. For more information on platform applications and customizing them, see Workspace Applications.

If the cluster you want to attach was created using Amazon EKS, Azure AKS or Google GKE, create a service account as described in Attach a Cluster with no Networking Restrictions (UI).

Platform applications extend the functionality of Kubernetes and provide ready-to-use logging and monitoring stacks by deploying platform applications when attaching a cluster to Kommander. For more information, refer to Workspace Applications.
