kops create

kops create

Create a resource by command line, filename or stdin.

Synopsis

Create a resource:

  • cluster
  • instancegroup
  • secret

Create a cluster, instancegroup or secret using command line parameters, YAML configuration specification files, or stdin. (Note: secrets cannot be created from YAML config files yet).

kops create -f FILENAME [flags]

Examples

  # Create a cluster from the configuration specification in a YAML file
  kops create -f my-cluster.yaml

  # Create secret from secret spec file
  kops create -f secret.yaml

  # Create an instancegroup based on the YAML passed into stdin.
  cat instancegroup.yaml | kops create -f -

  # Create a cluster in AWS
  kops create cluster --name=kubernetes-cluster.example.com \
  --state=s3://kops-state-1234 --zones=eu-west-1a \
  --node-count=2 --node-size=t2.micro --master-size=t2.micro \
  --dns-zone=example.com

  # Create an instancegroup for the k8s-cluster.example.com cluster.
  kops create ig --name=k8s-cluster.example.com node-example \
  --role node --subnet my-subnet-name

  # Create a new ssh public key called admin.
  kops create secret sshpublickey admin -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub \
  --name k8s-cluster.example.com --state s3://example.com
