Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) now allows you to see all standard Kubernetes API resource types running on your Amazon EKS cluster using the AWS Management Console. This makes it easy to visualize and troubleshoot your Kubernetes applications using Amazon EKS.

Amazon EKS is a fully managed Kubernetes service. Until now, the Amazon EKS console only supported viewing workload specific resources, such as deployments, jobs and DaemonSets running in your cluster. You needed to install and run additional tools to view, understand, and troubleshoot any other Kubernetes resource type.

The updated Amazon EKS console now includes all standard Kubernetes API resource types such as service resources, configuration and storage resources, authorization resources, policy resources and more. You can easily filter your Kubernetes resources by a specific namespace and search by property values, making it quick and easy to find objects, all within a single consistent experience in the console.

Viewing Kubernetes resources in the console is supported for all Kubernetes clusters hosted by Amazon EKS or any Kubernetes cluster using Amazon EKS Connector. Access is controlled by AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), so users have the same level of access through the console as their existing RBAC permissions.

To get started, view your clusters in the EKS console. To learn more, read our blog or visit the AWS documentation.
