Before creating a PKS container, you have to add a PKS endpoint.

The first step to create a PKS container is to add a PKS endpoint. PKS endpoints allow you to link plans, existing Kubernetes clusters, and business groups.


  • Container administrator privilege
  • PKS Credentials
  • UAA address
  • PKS endpoint address


  1. Navigate to credentials using the path Identity Management > Credentials to create and save your PKS credentials.
  2. Select PKS Endpoints > Create Endpoint.
  3. Enter the details of your PKS endpoint and test connection before saving.
    If the test fails, verify that the PKS credentials, UAA address, and PKS endpoint address are correct. You may have to ping the addresses to verify that they are active. Retry connection.
  4. Click Create to save your PKS endpoint.
    Note: If a Verify Certificate window appears you can select Show Certificate to view certificate details. Click Yes to proceed and save your endpoint.


Your PKS endpoint is saved. After saving your PKS endpoint, you can click the endpoint to view the available Kubernetes clusters associated with it. If the cluster has not been registered within vRealize Automation, the Requested column will have the value No. To register it you need to add a cluster. If you want to edit your endpoint, click the PKS endpoint name and modify its details. You can remove the endpoint by selecting and clicking Remove.
