This topic describes how to use Pivotal Container Service (PKS).
Note: Because PKS does not currently support the Kubernetes Service Catalog or the GCP Service Broker, binding clusters to Kubernetes services is not supported.
The procedures for using PKS have the following prerequisites:
You must have an external TCP or HTTPS load balancer configured to forward traffic to the PKS API endpoint. For more information, see the Configure External Load Balancer section of Installing and Configuring PKS.
You must know the address of your PKS API endpoint and have a UAA-created user account that has been granted PKS cluster access. For more information, see Manage Users in UAA.
Note: If your PKS installation is integrated with NSX-T, use the DNAT IP address assigned in the Retrieve the PKS Endpoint section of Installing and Configuring PKS with NSX-T Integration.
See the following sections:
- Create a Cluster
- Retrieve Cluster Credentials and Configuration
- View Cluster List
- View Cluster Details
- View Cluster Plans
- Using Dynamic Persistent Volumes
- Scale Existing Clusters
- Access the Dashboard
- Deploy and Access Basic Workloads
- Delete a Cluster
- Log Out of the PKS Environment
