Kops export kubecfg

kops export kubecfg

Export kubecfg.

Synopsis

Export a kubecfg file for a cluster from the state store. By default the configuration will be saved into a users $HOME/.kube/config file. Kops will respect the KUBECONFIG environment variable if the --kubeconfig flag is not set.

kops export kubecfg CLUSTERNAME [flags]

Examples

  # export a kubeconfig file with the cluster admin user (make sure you keep this user safe!)
  kops export kubecfg k8s-cluster.example.com --admin

  # export using a user already existing in the kubeconfig file
  kops export kubecfg k8s-cluster.example.com --user my-oidc-user

  # export using the internal DNS name, bypassing the cloud load balancer
  kops export kubecfg k8s-cluster.example.com --internal
