  • vpc (Optional[IVpc]) – The VPC in which to create the Cluster. Default: - a VPC with default configuration will be created and can be accessed through cluster.vpc.

  • vpc_subnets (Optional[Sequence[SubnetSelection]]) – Where to place EKS Control Plane ENIs. If you want to create public load balancers, this must include public subnets. For example, to only select private subnets, supply the following:: vpcSubnets: [ { subnetType: ec2.SubnetType.Private } ] Default: - All public and private subnets

  • cluster_handler_environment (Optional[Mapping[str, str]]) – Custom environment variables when interacting with the EKS endpoint to manage the cluster lifecycle. Default: - No environment variables.

  • kubectl_layer (Optional[ILayerVersion]) – An AWS Lambda Layer which includes kubectl, Helm and the AWS CLI. By default, the provider will use the layer included in the “aws-lambda-layer-kubectl” SAR application which is available in all commercial regions. To deploy the layer locally, visit https://github.com/aws-samples/aws-lambda-layer-kubectl/blob/master/cdk/README.md for instructions on how to prepare the .zip file and then define it in your app as follows:: const layer = new lambda.LayerVersion(this, ‘kubectl-layer’, { code: lambda.Code.fromAsset(${__dirname}/layer.zip)), compatibleRuntimes: [lambda.Runtime.PROVIDED] }) Default: - the layer provided by the aws-lambda-layer-kubectl SAR app.

  • place_cluster_handler_in_vpc (Optional[bool]) – If set to true, the cluster handler functions will be placed in the private subnets of the cluster vpc, subject to the vpcSubnets selection strategy. Default: false

  • prune (Optional[bool]) – Indicates whether Kubernetes resources added through addManifest() can be automatically pruned. When this is enabled (default), prune labels will be allocated and injected to each resource. These labels will then be used when issuing the kubectl apply operation with the --prune switch. Default: true

  • secrets_encryption_key (Optional[IKey]) – KMS secret for envelope encryption for Kubernetes secrets. Default: - By default, Kubernetes stores all secret object data within etcd and all etcd volumes used by Amazon EKS are encrypted at the disk-level using AWS-Managed encryption keys.

  • default_capacity (Union[int, float, None]) – Number of instances to allocate as an initial capacity for this cluster. Instance type can be configured through defaultCapacityInstanceType, which defaults to m5.large. Use cluster.addAutoScalingGroupCapacity to add additional customized capacity. Set this to 0 is you wish to avoid the initial capacity allocation. Default: 2

  • default_capacity_instance (Optional[InstanceType]) – The instance type to use for the default capacity. This will only be taken into account if defaultCapacity is > 0. Default: m5.large

  • default_capacity_type (Optional[DefaultCapacityType]) – The default capacity type for the cluster. Default: NODEGROUP
