Add a Kubernetes Cloud

To add a Kubernetes cloud follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to Admin > Clouds. This brings you to the Clouds page. If you, or another tenant admin in your tenant, has already added clouds to your tenant, they will be listed here. Click the Add Cloud link in the upper right.
  2. After clicking Add Cloud, the Add Cloud dialog box is displayed. Enter the cloud name and select the cloud provider.
  3. Since you are selecting select a Kubernetes cloud provider, a new data entry field appears at the bottom of the dialog box called Kubernetes Cluster API Endpoint, as shown in the figure below. You must enter the URL of the Kubernetes API endpoint in this field before the Next button is enabled. When done click Next.

  4. After clicking Next, the second page of the Add Clouds dialog box, Connectivity Settings, appears with a single toggle displayed
    • Cloud Endpoint Directly Accessible

    as shown in the figure below.

    Setting this toggle to No causes a second toggle to be displayed: CloudCenter Suite Directly Accessible from Cloud Remote

    Note

    If you set the Cloud Endpoint Directly Accessible toggle to No, you will need to install the Cloud Remote component in a VM-based private cloud that is accessible to the target Kubernetes cloud.

    Follow the table below for guidance on setting these toggles.
