Container Service for Kubernetes:List of operations by function

Last Updated:May 27, 2024
This product(CS/2015-12-15) OpenAPI adopts ROA Signature style. See signature details in Description of the signature mechanism. We have packaged SDKs for common programming languages for developers. Developers can directly call the OpenAPI of this product by downloading the SDK without paying attention to the technical details. If the existing SDK cannot meet the usage requirements, you can connect through the signature mechanism. It will take about 5 working days. Therefore, it is recommended to join our DingTalk service group (11370001915) and sign under the guidance of experts.
Before using the API, you need to prepare your identity account and access key (AccessKey) to effectively access the API through client tools (SDK, CLI, etc.). For details see getAccessKey.

API catalog

APITitleDescription
OpenAckServiceOpenAckServiceYou can call the OpenAckService operation to activate Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK).

Cluster

APITitleDescription
CreateClusterCreateClusterYou can call the CreateCluster operation to create a Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) cluster. ACK clusters include ACK managed clusters, ACK dedicated clusters, ACK Serverless clusters, ACK Edge clusters, ACK clusters that support sandboxed containers, and registered clusters. For more information about how to create different types of ACK clusters, see the following usage notes.
DeleteClusterDeleteClusterYou can call the DeleteCluster operation to delete a cluster and specify whether to delete or retain the relevant cluster resources. Before you delete a cluster, you must manually delete workloads in the cluster, such as Deployments, StatefulSets, Jobs, and CronJobs. Otherwise, you may fail to delete the cluster.
DescribeClustersV1DescribeClustersV1You can call the DescribeClustersV1 operation to query the details about all Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) clusters.
DescribeClusterDetailDescribeClusterDetailYou can call the DescribeClusterDetail operation to query the details of a Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) cluster by cluster ID.
DescribeClusterResourcesDescribeClusterResourcesYou can call the DescribeClusterResources operation to query all resources in a cluster by cluster ID.
DescribeKubernetesVersionMetadataDescribeKubernetesVersionMetadataQueries the detailed information about Kubernetes versions, including the version number, release date, expiration date, compatible OSs, and runtime.
DescribeUserClusterNamespacesDescribeUserClusterNamespacesQueries the Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) permissions that are granted to the current Resource Access Management (RAM) user or RAM role on a Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) cluster. You can use Kubernetes namespaces to limit users from accessing resources in an ACK cluster. Users that are granted RBAC permissions only on one namespace cannot access resources in other namespaces.

MigrateClusterMigrateClusterContainer Service for Kubernetes (ACK) Pro clusters are developed based on ACK Basic clusters. ACK Pro clusters provide all benefits of ACK managed clusters, such as fully-managed control planes and control plane high availability. In addition, ACK Pro clusters provide you with enhanced reliability, security, and schedulability. ACK Pro clusters are covered by the SLA that supports compensation clauses. ACK Pro clusters are suitable for large-scale businesses that require high stability and security in production environments. We recommend that you migrate from ACK Basic clusters to ACK Pro clusters.
DescribeClusterUserKubeconfigDescribeClusterUserKubeconfigKubeconfig files store identity and authentication information that is used by clients to access Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) clusters. To use a kubectl client to manage an ACK cluster, you need to use the corresponding kubeconfig file to connect to the ACK cluster. We recommend that you keep kubeconfig files confidential and revoke kubeconfig files that are not in use. This helps prevent data leaks caused by the disclosure of kubeconfig files.
DescribeSubaccountK8sClusterUserConfigDescribeSubaccountK8sClusterUserConfigYou can use an Alibaba Cloud account to call the DescribeSubaccountK8sClusterUserConfig operation to obtain the cluster kubeconfig file of a RAM user or RAM role.
