Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

Output of linode-cli lke kubeconfig-view is not a yaml.

See original GitHub issue

To reproduce: Create example lke cluster with linode-cli: linode-cli lke cluster-create --label kubtest --region us-central --k8s_version 1.21 --node_pools.type g6-standard-1 --node_pools.count 3 Wait until all is provisioned and running. Find cluster id: linode-cli lke clusters-list Get kubeconfig: linode-cli lke kubeconfig-view <cluster ID>

Appears encrypted, but there is minimal documentation on this. Downloading from dashboard works as expected.

Perhaps a more accurate issue report would be regarding the feedback of --help in this case:

finn@ws:~$ linode-cli lke kubeconfig-view --help

linode-cli lke kubeconfig-view [CLUSTERID]

Kubeconfig View

As opposed to docs, which provide the adequate: “The Base64-encoded Kubeconfig file for this Cluster.”

Dorthucommented, Jun 21, 2021

The docs say that this operation returns a base64-encoded kubeconfig - you should be able to retrieve the yaml by decoding the output blob. You can do that in all one step like this:

linode-cli lke kubeconfig-view $LKE_CLUSTER_ID --text  --no-headers | base64 -d

I do agree that it would be nice if this operation returned the YAML without needing manual decoding, though; I’ll look into it. Thanks for the report 👍
