TIL Recover GKE kubeconfig
I found myself needing to teach
kubectl how to connect to a particular GKE cluster -- fast. ⚡️
Here's the recipe, which assumes
gcloud is set up properly for the correct Google Cloud account.
🚀 Let's go!
What was the cluster name again?
gcloud container clusters list
Copy the correct cluster name. Let's use
catsonk8s for our example. The magic is all in the next command:
gcloud container clusters get-credentials catsonk8s --zone us-east1-c Fetching cluster endpoint and auth data. kubeconfig entry generated for catsonk8s.
You'll need to adjust the
--zone value to suit or use
🎉 All done! Commands like
kubectl get pods are all set up to talk to the cluster.
🍀 Good luck with whatever Kubernetes problem you are solving.
