Cluster View

Monitor and Interact with your Cluster!

Cluster View Tour


Cluster Workspace

With the cluster workspace you can have quick access to your clusters. This will give you a Multi Cluster summary view giving you monitoring information, the applications that have been deployed in the cluster, how many pods are running and how many are pending or have an error. The first time that you open K8 Studio the cluster configuration will be read from your local ./kube/config file. Additional Clusters can be added using the interface.

Cluster Interactive View

Once you have a cluster configured in your workspace you can open it in the cluster Interactive View. This view will show you all the nodes that are running, what type of node, the pod and containers that are running in each pod. For each one of the pods, it will show the status. It will show the services, ingresses and policies. With this information it will draw the network topology showing port, addresses and dependencies. Config Maps, Secrets, PVCS and volumes will also be displayed showing all the relevant information. Once the view is opened it will be connected to the events of the Kubernetes API which means that the data is live and updated.

Main Cluster View

Filter and Search

You can easily search any element in the workspace using the search bar. It works as a google search bar and it will find anything that matches the query by label, name, image name, etc. We also provide a filter interface where you can choose the visible namespaces, labels or object types.

Cluster Object Search


The Toolbox contains all of the object types available in Kubernetes classified in workloads, network, storage configuration and security. You can select an element in Toolbox and drag and drop to the Interactive View or the Project Tree. This will create an object and its corresponding file with the right minimal content.

Project View

In the Cluster View, it is really easy to create or apply a configuration. You have two choices. Either use the Project View or you open a folder. The Project View will show all of the configuration projects that are part of the workspace and you can deploy/apply in your cluster just by drag and drop into the Interactive View. You can also create/apply a project by opening a folder in your file system. K8 Studio will create/apply all of the existing valid YAML files of the project.

Editing Elements

In the Cluster View you can edit and update any element. When you choose an element in the Interactive View you have access to 3 types of editors: the Compact View, the Magic Tree or the raw YAML Editor. To have more details, take a look at the Editor View page. It works in a similar way.

The magic Tree

SSH and Logs

You can quickly connect in SSH to any pod or gain access to the logs.

K8s Studio Configuration View


The Cluster View gives you many ways of exporting your objects. You can export a selected element to YAML file or you can dump the full cluster configuration filter by namespaces to project folder. You also have the option to export the existing view to SVG or HTML to help you out with your documentation.


RBAC Editor

The Cluster View provides a comprehensive RBAC Editor. You can add user accounts, service accounts, cluster roles and roles. You can bind users to roles and you can have a view of the rules applied to the users.
