Description

Creates an access entry. An access entry allows an IAM principal to access your cluster. Access entries can replace the need to maintain entries in the aws-authConfigMap for authentication. You have the following options for authorizing an IAM principal to access Kubernetes objects on your cluster: Kubernetes role-based access control (RBAC), Amazon EKS, or both. Kubernetes RBAC authorization requires you to create and manage Kubernetes Role, ClusterRole, RoleBinding, and ClusterRoleBinding objects, in addition to managing access entries. If you use Amazon EKS authorization exclusively, you don't need to create and manage Kubernetes Role, ClusterRole, RoleBinding, and ClusterRoleBinding objects. For more information about access entries, see Access entries in the Amazon EKS User Guide.

Parameters

-ClientConfig <AmazonEKSConfig>
Amazon.PowerShell.Cmdlets.EKS.AmazonEKSClientCmdlet.ClientConfig
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ClientRequestToken <String>
A unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ClusterName <String>
The name of your cluster.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-KubernetesGroup <String[]>
The value for name that you've specified for kind: Group as a subject in a Kubernetes RoleBinding or ClusterRoleBinding object. Amazon EKS doesn't confirm that the value for name exists in any bindings on your cluster. You can specify one or more names.Kubernetes authorizes the principalArn of the access entry to access any cluster objects that you've specified in a Kubernetes Role or ClusterRole object that is also specified in a binding's roleRef. For more information about creating Kubernetes RoleBinding, ClusterRoleBinding, Role, or ClusterRole objects, see Using RBAC Authorization in the Kubernetes documentation.If you want Amazon EKS to authorize the principalArn (instead of, or in addition to Kubernetes authorizing the principalArn), you can associate one or more access policies to the access entry using AssociateAccessPolicy. If you associate any access policies, the principalARN has all permissions assigned in the associated access policies and all permissions in any Kubernetes Role or ClusterRole objects that the group names are bound to.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesKubernetesGroups
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the ClusterName parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^ClusterName' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PrincipalArn <String>
The ARN of the IAM principal for the AccessEntry. You can specify one ARN for each access entry. You can't specify the same ARN in more than one access entry. This value can't be changed after access entry creation.The valid principals differ depending on the type of the access entry in the type field. The only valid ARN is IAM roles for the types of access entries for nodes: . You can use every IAM principal type for STANDARD access entries. You can't use the STS session principal type with access entries because this is a temporary principal for each session and not a permanent identity that can be assigned permissions.IAM best practices recommend using IAM roles with temporary credentials, rather than IAM users with long-term credentials.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'AccessEntry'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.EKS.Model.CreateAccessEntryResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.EKS.Model.CreateAccessEntryResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Tag <Hashtable>
Metadata that assists with categorization and organization. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value. You define both. Tags don't propagate to any other cluster or Amazon Web Services resources.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesTags
-Type <String>
The type of the new access entry. Valid values are Standard, FARGATE_LINUX, EC2_LINUX, and EC2_WINDOWS.If the principalArn is for an IAM role that's used for self-managed Amazon EC2 nodes, specify EC2_LINUX or EC2_WINDOWS. Amazon EKS grants the necessary permissions to the node for you. If the principalArn is for any other purpose, specify STANDARD. If you don't specify a value, Amazon EKS sets the value to STANDARD. It's unnecessary to create access entries for IAM roles used with Fargate profiles or managed Amazon EC2 nodes, because Amazon EKS creates entries in the aws-authConfigMap for the roles. You can't change this value once you've created the access entry.If you set the value to EC2_LINUX or EC2_WINDOWS, you can't specify values for kubernetesGroups, or associate an AccessPolicy to the access entry.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Username <String>
The username to authenticate to Kubernetes with. We recommend not specifying a username and letting Amazon EKS specify it for you. For more information about the value Amazon EKS specifies for you, or constraints before specifying your own username, see Creating access entries in the Amazon EKS User Guide.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
