Instance-level Kubernetes clusters

Introduced in GitLab 11.11.


Similar to project-level and group-level Kubernetes clusters, instance-level Kubernetes clusters allow you to connect a Kubernetes cluster to the GitLab instance, which enables you to use the same cluster across multiple projects.

Cluster precedence

GitLab will try match to clusters in the following order:

  • Project-level clusters
  • Group-level clusters
  • Instance level

To be selected, the cluster must be enabled and match the environment selector.

Cluster environments

For a consolidated view of which CI environments are deployed to the Kubernetes cluster, see the documentation for cluster environments.
