Enable Or Disable A Kubernetes API

This page shows how to enable or disable an API version from your cluster's control plane.

Specific API versions can be turned on or off by passing --runtime-config=api/<version> as a command line argument to the API server. The values for this argument are a comma-separated list of API versions. Later values override earlier values.

The runtime-config command line argument also supports 2 special keys:

  • api/all, representing all known APIs
  • api/legacy, representing only legacy APIs. Legacy APIs are any APIs that have been explicitly deprecated.

For example, to turn off all API versions except v1, pass --runtime-config=api/all=false,api/v1=true to the kube-apiserver.
