kubefed join


Join adds a cluster to a federation.

Current context is assumed to be a federation API
server. Please use the --context flag otherwise.
kubefed join CLUSTER_NAME --host-cluster-context=HOST_CONTEXT


  # Join a cluster to a federation by specifying the
  # cluster name and the context name of the federation
  # control plane's host cluster. Cluster name must be
  # a valid RFC 1123 subdomain name. Cluster context
  # must be specified if the cluster name is different
  # than the cluster's context in the local kubeconfig.
  kubefed join foo --host-cluster-context=bar


      --allow-missing-template-keys          If true, ignore any errors in templates when a field or map key is missing in the template. Only applies to golang and jsonpath output formats. (default true)
      --cluster-context string               Name of the cluster's context in the local kubeconfig. Defaults to cluster name if unspecified.
      --dry-run                              If true, only print the object that would be sent, without sending it.
      --federation-system-namespace string   Namespace in the host cluster where the federation system components are installed (default "federation-system")
      --generator string                     The name of the API generator to use. (default "cluster/v1beta1")
      --host-cluster-context string          Host cluster context
      --kubeconfig string                    Path to the kubeconfig file to use for CLI requests.
      --no-headers                           When using the default or custom-column output format, don't print headers (default print headers).
  -o, --output string                        Output format. One of: json|yaml|wide|name|custom-columns=...|custom-columns-file=...|go-template=...|go-template-file=...|jsonpath=...|jsonpath-file=... See custom columns [], golang template [] and jsonpath template [].
      --save-config                          If true, the configuration of current object will be saved in its annotation. Otherwise, the annotation will be unchanged. This flag is useful when you want to perform kubectl apply on this object in the future.
  -a, --show-all                             When printing, show all resources (default hide terminated pods.)
      --show-labels                          When printing, show all labels as the last column (default hide labels column)
      --sort-by string                       If non-empty, sort list types using this field specification.  The field specification is expressed as a JSONPath expression (e.g. '{}'). The field in the API resource specified by this JSONPath expression must be an integer or a string.
      --template string                      Template string or path to template file to use when -o=go-template, -o=go-template-file. The template format is golang templates [].
      --validate                             If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it (default true)
