Manager Initiated

Refer to the overview page for a background information on the manager initiated registration style.

Kubeconfig Secret

The manager initiated registration flow is accomplished by creating a Cluster resource in the Fleet Manager that refers to a Kubernetes Secret containing a valid kubeconfig file in the data field called value.

The format of this secret is intended to match the format of the kubeconfig secret used in cluster-api. This means you can use cluster-api to create a cluster that is dynamically registered with Fleet.
