Giving others access to the cluster

Unless you're planning to be the only person in your organization with the access to the cluster, you'll need to create a kubectl configuration that you can distribute to your coworkers. Let's see the steps:

cd cluster
mkdir -p config

We went back to the cluster directory, created the sub-directory config, and exported KUBECONFIG variable with the path to the file where we'd like to store the configuration. Now we can execute kops export:

kops export kubecfg --name ${NAME}

apiVersion: v1
- cluster:
    certificate-authority-data: ...
  name: devops23.k8s.local
- context:
