kore setup cloudidentity

kore setup cloudidentity#

Creates the IAM resources required in your cloud provider to run Kore with implicit cloud identity


Ensures a cloud identity exists in a cloud provider for Kore to use for accessing one or more cloud APIs with least privilege.

You must be logged in to the relevant cloud in order for these commands to work:

You must also have created a cluster in the cloud provider in question:

  • AWS: Ensure you have an EKS cluster in which you plan to, or have installed Kore.
kore setup cloudidentity [flags]


# Add a cloud identity and, be prompted for all the values:
$ kore setup cloudidentity
# Create AWS role for the kore management cluster where kore is (or
# will be) installed, and configure an AWS KMS key for secrets
# encryption:
$ kore setup cloudidentity --cluster-name my-eks-cluster -c aws --kore-namespace kore --aws-setup-kms-key


--aws-disable-kms-setup disables AWS KMS key setup for Kore secrets encryption (by default, KMS setup is enabled when using -c aws)
-c, --cloud string cloud to create/ensure identity for: gcp, aws, azure
-k, --cluster-name string name of the kubernetes cluster Kore is (or will be) installed on in the cloud provider
-h, --help help for cloudidentity
-n, --kore-namespace string Kubernetes namespace Kore is (or will be) installed in
--kore-sa string Kubernetes service account for Kore (set in the Kore helm chart, should not need changing from default) (default "kore-admin")
