Add a Google Cloud Kubernetes cluster to Cloud Manager

Contributors juliantap

You can discover or import Kubernetes clusters to Cloud Manager so that you can back up persistent volumes to Google Cloud.

Discover a cluster

You can discover a fully-managed or self-managed Kubernetes cluster. Managed clusters must be discovered; they cannot be imported.

Steps
  1. On the Canvas, click Add Working Environment.

  2. Select Google Cloud Platform > Kubernetes Cluster and click Next.

Import a Cluster

You can import a self-managed Kubernetes cluster using a Kubernetes configuration file.

Before you get started

You will need Certificate Authority, Client Key, and Client Certificate certificates for the user specified in the cluster role YAML file to import Kubernetes clusters. The Kubernetes cluster administrator receives these certifications when creating users on the Kubernetes cluster.

Steps
  1. On the Canvas, click Add Working Environment.

  2. Select Google Cloud Platform > Kubernetes Cluster and click Next.

  3. Select Import Cluster and click Next.

  4. Upload a Kubernetes configuration file in YAML format.
