Mist helps you manage Kubernetes clusters alongside other supported clouds.
Specifically for Kubernetes, with Mist you can view your cluster nodes, pods, containers and their metadata, e.g. IP, status, limits, requests etc.
You can also leverage features that are common to all our supported clouds, e.g. RBAC, shell, scripts, monitoring, rules, audit logs etc.
To get started with Kubernetes in Mist, you first need to add a Kubernetes cloud. In more detail:
- Log in Mist.
- Go to Mist's add cloud form at https://mist.io/clouds/+add and click the Kubernetes logo.
- In the form that appears at the bottom, type a name for your cloud.
- Provide hostname or IP and port number which Mist can use to communicate with your Kubernetes API.
- If you are using a self-signed certificate, paste your CA Certificate in the respective field. This is recommended but not required.
- Mist can authenticate with the Kubernetes API using Basic HTTP, TLS or a Bearer Token. Select the one that applies to your case and give the relevant information. For more information on Kubernetes authentication check out the official documentation here and a helpful blog post here.
- Click the "ADD CLOUD" button and you are ready to go.
