An `azure_aks` asset generates a terraform file that will create an Azure AKS Cluster.

This content is associated with a legacy version of the Replicated product. For the current Replicated product documentation, see

Assets | Config | Lifecycle


An azure_aks asset generates a terraform file that will create an Azure AKS Cluster.

It also populates a template function AzureAKS that takes the name of the cluster and returns the path to the generated kubeconfig for the cluster. This template function is only valid after the asset has been generated as part of the render lifecycle step, but can be used by later assets within that step. The file itself is created when the generated terraform is applied, whether by the terraform lifecycle step or otherwise. This is intended to be used within the kubectlApply lifecycle step.

Required Parameters

  • cluster_name - The name of the cluster.

  • location - The location of the resource group specified in resource_group_name

  • resource_group_name - The name of a resource group within the subscription specified in subscription_id

  • service_principal_id - The Application ID of a registered application.

  • service_principal_secret - A key associated with a registered application.

  • subscription_id - An Azure subscription ID

  • tenant_id - The tenant ID, also known as Directory ID, from Azure Active Directory

Optional Parameters

  • description - A description for the cluster.

  • dest - The path within installer/ to place the generated file. Defaults to

  • disk_gb - The size of the disk the the operating system will be installed on for each node in the cluster

  • kubernetes_version - The cluster version to create

  • mode - Ignored

  • public_key - Enables SSH access to the nodes in the cluster with the corresponding private key
