CLI Plugins for Tanzu Kubernetes Grid

This topic associates versions of Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) with the versions of Tanzu CLI plugins that they work with.

The Tanzu CLI has plugin groups that are associated with different CLI targets as described in CLI Core, Plugins, Plugin Groups, and Products in the Tanzu CLI reference.

The plugin groups add commands to the Tanzu CLI that extend its capabilities in ways that apply to different facets of Tanzu. For TKG, you extend the CLI by installing the plugins in the plugin group vmware-tkg/default, for example as described in Install the Tanzu CLI Plugins for TKG v2.5.

Package versions: Package version compatibility on workload clusters is based on their Kubernetes version, not the vSphere with Tanzu version of their Supervisor or the TKG version of their standalone management cluster.
