Enable Autoscaler #

If you decide to enable auto-scaling in an existing project, you need to specify the required parameters and press the Save button. You can see the more detailed process here.

Upgrade #

Upgrade your version of Kubespray to the latest one. The button is disabled if your Kubernetes are up to date. Enabling auto-upgrade during the project creation, the Upgrade button won’t be available. You can see more details here.

Enable/Disable Backup #

You can Enable Backup if you have added the credentials in Backup Credentials and your Project isn’t locked. You can do it during or after the project is created.

After you enable the backup, you get notified through Notification, and you can check the successful status in Kubernetes. In the Projects – Kubernetes – Deployment section, you should see Velero installed.

After enabling backup, you need to add Backup Policies.

Enforce Policies #

If you haven’t chosen Policy Profile during Project creation, you can do it after the project is created.

First, create a new profile in Policy Profiles and then enforce the policy.

Disable the policy the same way.

Enable/Disable Monitoring #

Be able to see detailed processes with enabling monitoring. After you enable it, which takes up to 5 minutes, you can preview all tracks with the Logs button. The tracking starts the moment the Logs button is enabled.

You can enable monitoring before project creation or (if you forgot or have changed your mind) whenever your project is created.

Disable function works the same.

Commit #

Sends the changes to the repository.

Once the cluster is committed, you will see ETC in the project info.

Repair #

Use the Repair button when the server/s are Failing or there is some other problem in the cluster.

Attach/Detach Alerting Profile #

Attach Alerting Profile if you want to receive notifications about alerts in your project. Detach if notifications are no longer needed.

Lock/Unlock #

 Lock/ Unlock

 Project is unlocked

Clicking the button, you lock a project. You can preview some pages (e.g., K8s Info), but you can’t make any changes to the project (see Overview of Taikun Projects).

 Project is locked

Clicking the button, you unlock a project and enable action buttons.

Kubeconfigs #

Add a new Kubernetes configuration for your profile and project.

Name – choose a name for your kubeconfig (2-230 characters)

Kubeconfig Role

  • cluster-admin – perform any action on any resource, ClusterRoleBinding – gives complete control over every resource in the cluster and all namespaces (or in every resource in the role binding’s namespace – RoleBinding)
  • admin – RoleBinding – allows read/write access to most resources in a namespace, does not allow write access to resource quota or to the namespace itself
  • edit – allows read/write access to most objects in a namespace, does not allow viewing or modifying roles or role bindings, allows accessing Secrets and running Pods as any ServiceAccount in the namespace
  • view – see most objects in a namespace, does not allow viewing roles or role bindings, does not allow viewing Secrets
Info #

For more info, see kubernetes documentation.

Application kubeconfig – choose if kubeconfig can be used by other users (all or managers only) or Personal kubeconfig – kubeconfig can be used only by you (Target User is empty) or choose user you want to create the kubeconfig for

You can see all project configurations in the table with their IDNameUser NameUser Role, Project, Accessible for all, and Actions.


 This .yaml file can be downloaded and used to organize information about clusters, users, namespaces, and authentication mechanisms.

 Delete your Kube config if it is no longer needed. You can also delete users’ or partners’ Kube configs.

Access the cluster and authenticates the kubeconfig file, allowing command line execution directly on Taikun. Read about it here.

K8s Info #

If Kubernetes is active, the Kube Info button will redirect you to the Kubernetes configuration.

K8s Information – provides a concise overview of the current operational state and configuration details of the deployed Kubernetes cluster, including node state, pod information, service configurations, deployments, and other essential aspects, so users can quickly assess the cluster’s health and setup.

Through an intuitive UI, users can access external IP addresses, view YAML files, initiate pod restarts directly, and even manipulate components through the integrated UI terminal, improving observability and control over cluster operations.

For more, see Projects – Kubernetes.

Events #

You are redirected to Events, where you can see all Kubernetes changes made in the project. To preview details for more information on each action use button. A green strip indicates a successful action and a brown strip indicates a failed action.

You can sort Events by:

  • Search field
  • Filling Start and End Date
  • Tick Only failed to filter failed actions

Backup Policy #

After you Enable Backup, you have to create a Backup Policy. After clicking the Backup Policy button, you get redirected to a new page, where you create a new policy with Add Policy button.

Name – choose a name for your backup (3-30 characters)

Retention period – how long you want to keep the backup (format, e.g., 72h)

Cron period – how often do you want to do the backup

  • predefined – choose from selection from the most common periods
  • custom – if you want to specify your own period (format * * * * *)
    • e.g. every hour – 0 * * * *; daily – 0 0 * * *, weekly on Sunday – 0 0 * * 0 (crontab guru with examples)

Add Include/Exclude Namespace – specify the special requests that you want to include or exclude from the backup, at least one must be filled into

The backup is done with a snapshot method – a backup copy is used to create the full copy of servers every chosen time period.

There are three tabs:

Schedules #

In Schedules, you can find an overview of your backup policy.

 Show description – see detailed e.g., specification, metadata, etc.

 Delete – stop the backup by deleting the policy

Backups #

Backups contain backups from schedules.

 Show description – see detailed e.g., specification, metadata, etc.

 Restore backup – if anything goes wrong, you can restore the backup, which you will then see in the Restores tab

 Delete – delete the backup
