Cluster Registration Internals
Detailed analysis of the registration process for clusters. This shows the interaction of controllers, resources and service accounts during the registration of a new downstream cluster or the local cluster. It's important to note that there are multiple ways to start this:
- Creating a bootstrap config. Fleet does this for the local agent.
- Creating a
Clusterresource with a kubeconfig. Rancher does this for downstream clusters. See manager-initiated registration.
- Create a
ClusterRegistrationTokenresource, optionally create a
Clusterresource for a pre-defined (
clientID) cluster. See agent-initiated registration.
