Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Extension for Visual Studio Code (Preview)
Once you successfully log in with your Azure Account, you can view all AKS clusters in your Azure subscriptions(s) under the section named Azure. You can right click on your AKS cluster and click a menu item to perform following actions.
Merge into Kubeconfig
Right click on your AKS cluster and click on Merge into Kubeconfig to add the selected AKS cluster to the kubeconfig file.
Right click on your AKS cluster and click on Save Kubeconfig to save the kubeconfig of the selected AKS cluster.
Right click on your AKS cluster and click on Run AKS Diagnostics to run a series of checks on your AKS cluster's backend telemetry to get diagnostics information on your network configuration and recommended solutions for network and connectivity issues. Also, to perform more checks on your AKS cluster to troubleshoot and get recommended solutions, click on the AKS Diagnostics link at the top of the page to open it for the selected cluster. For more information on AKS Diagnostics, visit AKS Diagnostics Overview.
Right click on your AKS cluster and click on Run AKS Periscope to collect node and pod logs for your AKS cluster and to export them to an Azure storage account. Upon selecting the option, a web view will load providing you the option to generate a downloadable link for the collected logs as well as a shareable link with 7-day expiry.
For more information, visit AKS Periscope.
Configuring Storage Account
Running the AKS Periscope requires you to have a storage account associated with the Diagnostic settings of your AKS cluster. If you have only one storage account associated with the Diagnostic settings of your AKS cluster, the collected logs will be stored in the associated storage account by default. If you have more than one storage account associated with the Diagnostics settings of your AKS cluster, then the extension will prompt you to choose the storage account for saving collected logs. If you don't have a storage account configured in the Diagnostic settings, please follow these instructions to enable it.
For more information on Diagnostics settings, visit Create diagnostic settings to send platform logs and metics to different destinations.
Configure CI/CD Workflow
Right click on your AKS cluster and click on Configure CI/CD Workflow to create a Continous Integration / Continous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline targetting your cluster. This will use Deploy to Azure VSCode extension and have a guided experience to generate a YAML file defining the build and deploy process.
Browse CI/CD Workflows
Right click on your AKS cluster and click on Browse CI/CD Workflows to view details of all existing Continous Integration / Continous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines that are configured against your cluster.
Install Azure Service Operator
Right click on your AKS cluster and click on Install Azure Service Operator to easily deploy the latest version of Azure Service Operator (ASO) on your AKS cluster and provision and connect applications to Azure resources within Kubernetes. When you select this option, you'll be prompted for a service principal for ASO to use when performing Azure resource operations. This service principal must have appropriate permissions (typically Contributor at suitable scope). Fill out the service principal details and click Submit to kick off the installation of Azure Servic Operator.
