Checkout how to add Supervisor Services to the vCenter Server system where your vSphere with Tanzu environment runs. After adding services to vCenter Server, you install Supervisor Services on Supervisors so that your DevOps engineers can use the services in Kubernetes workloads.

Note: Supervisor Services are supported on single-cluster Supervisors that run on either VDS or NSX networking stacks. You cannot deploy Supervisor Services on three-zone Supervisors.


  • Verify that you have the Manage Supervisor Services privilege on the vCenter Server system where you add the service.


  1. From the vSphere Client home menu, select Workload Management.
  2. Select Services.
  3. Select a vCenter Server system from the drop-down menu at the top.
  4. Drag and drop the service YAML file in the Add New Service card.
