This is a multi-part, self paced exercise to explore the platform's capabilities for "Lifecycle Management" of an Upstream Managed Kubernetes Cluster (MKS).

What Will You Do by Part

Part What will you do?
1 Configure and Provision an MKS Cluster using RCTL or the web console, view the cluster through the integrated monitoring and dashboards, securely access the cluster's API server using zero trust kubectl
2 Scale the cluster by updating the number of nodes
3 Upgrade the kubernetes version of the cluster
4 Deprovision the cluster from the controller



The instructions describe the process using a combination of the RCTL CLI and the web console. The same steps can be performed using the REST APIs or a Terraform provider for automation.
