create-addon

Description

Creates an Amazon EKS add-on.

Amazon EKS add-ons help to automate the provisioning and lifecycle management of common operational software for Amazon EKS clusters. Amazon EKS add-ons can only be used with Amazon EKS clusters running version 1.18 with platform version eks.3 or later because add-ons rely on the Server-side Apply Kubernetes feature, which is only available in Kubernetes 1.18 and later.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--cluster-name (string)

The name of the cluster to create the add-on for.

--addon-name (string)

The name of the add-on. The name must match one of the names returned by ` DescribeAddonVersions https://docs.aws.amazon.com/eks/latest/APIReference/API_DescribeAddonVersions.html`__ .

--addon-version (string)

The version of the add-on. The version must match one of the versions returned by ` DescribeAddonVersions https://docs.aws.amazon.com/eks/latest/APIReference/API_DescribeAddonVersions.html`__ .

--service-account-role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an existing IAM role to bind to the add-on's service account. The role must be assigned the IAM permissions required by the add-on. If you don't specify an existing IAM role, then the add-on uses the permissions assigned to the node IAM role. For more information, see Amazon EKS node IAM role in the Amazon EKS User Guide .

Note

To specify an existing IAM role, you must have an IAM OpenID Connect (OIDC) provider created for your cluster. For more information, see Enabling IAM roles for service accounts on your cluster in the Amazon EKS User Guide .

--resolve-conflicts (string)

How to resolve parameter value conflicts when migrating an existing add-on to an Amazon EKS add-on.

Possible values:

  • OVERWRITE
  • NONE

--client-request-token (string)

A unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request.

--tags (map)

The metadata to apply to the cluster to assist with categorization and organization. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
