Adding Kubernetes users

This Quick Start creates an IAM role that is used to create the Kubernetes control plane. The AWS CloudFormation custom resources and the Linux bastion host use the IAM role to provide access to the Kubernetes API. Additional IAM users or roles can be added as Kubernetes admin users (system:master) by entering a comma-separated list of ARNs into the AdditionalEKSAdminArns parameter when you launch this Quick Start. To add users after the stack has launched, connect by using SSH into the bastion host and follow the steps in the Amazon EKS documentation.
