Support for Fleet Operations is currently available in the Preview environment
A Fleet Plan on clusters refers to a strategic approach for managing and coordinating resources across multiple clusters. It involves creating a comprehensive plan to streamline operations on bunch of clusters available within one or more fleet(s), and ensure efficient utilization of cluster resources. With Fleet Plan, users can effortlessly perform a wide range of operations such as upgrades, backups, patch, and scaling across their clusters. The base roles Infra admin and Org Admin are allowed to create and run the fleet plan
Users Benefit from Fleet Plan in the following Ways:
- Cluster Management: Oversee and control multiple clusters simultaneously
- Upgrade: Simplifies the process of upgrading clusters within the fleet
- Backups: Conveniently manage and schedule backups for their clusters
- Patching: Streamlines the patch management process for clusters within the fleet
- Scaling: Easily scale their clusters up or down to accommodate changing workload demands

An Org Admin/ Infra Admin can create Cluster Fleet Plans via three methods:
- Fleet plan refers to labels to target the clusters
- GitOps agent is required for executing the hooks in fleet plan when Runner type is configured as Agent in the hook configuration
- Container image is necessary for hooks (pre and post hook configuration)
