You can generate login credentials from VMware Telco Cloud Automation and use an external SSH client to access the Kubernetes cluster using these credentials.


Ensure that you have installed an external SSH client on your local system.


  1. Log in to the VMware Telco Cloud Automation web interface.
  2. Navigate to Infrastructure > Virtual Infrastructure and select the VIM.
  3. Click the menu and select Show Login Credentials.
    VMware Telco Cloud Automation generates a one-time token, user name, and password.
    Note: The expiration time for the token is eight hours.
  4. Using these login credentials, you can SSH into a Kubernetes cluster and perform cluster operations based on your user privileges. The SSH connection is established to the endpoint of VMware Telco Cloud Automation on port 8501.
    For example:
    ssh <username>@<tcaIp> -p 8501
