Administer projects

Mission Control organizes clusters by projects. A project is a logical grouping of clusters. For example, you might have a project for each environment (dev, test, prod), or for each team (team1, team2, team3).

Through the Mission Control User Interface (UI)

Mission Control provides a UI through the IP address of any node using port 30880 on the Control-Plane cluster. For example, issue from a web browser, where is the qualifying node’s IP address.

Creating a new project

The first item in the sidebar gives you access to the list of projects. Click on Projects → to display the list of existing projects. In that list click on + New Project to create a new project:

Project list

The following dialog opens:

New project dialog

Enter a name for the project and click on the Create Project button. The Project Slug is a unique identifier that is generated by Mission Control. The new project is created and you can click on its name in the Projects → list to access it.

Through a Command Line Interface (CLI)

The Kubernetes kubectl command-line tool, v1.22 or later, enables you to run commands programmatically against Kubernetes (K8s) clusters through the K8s API server.

Creating a new project

Projects are special namespaces that have two additional fields:

  • A label set to true

  • A annotation set to the project name

The project slug is used as the name for the namespace and generated by Mission Control when a project is created. Here is an example of a project definition:

apiVersion: v1
kind: Namespace
  name: <project-slug>
  labels: "true"
  annotations: "<`MY_PROJECT`>"

After saving this manifest to a file (example, <`MY_PROJECT>.yaml`), you can create the project with the following command:

kubectl apply -f <`MY_PROJECT`>yaml

Deleting a project

Deleting a project is as simple as deleting the namespace:

kubectl delete namespace <`MY_PROJECT`>

Modifying a project name

The project name is stored in the annotation. You can modify it with the following command:

kubectl annotate namespace <`MY_PROJECT`><`NEW_PROJECT_NAME`>  --overwrite




The namespace of the chosen project


The new project name
