Control Plane Connector

Upbound’s managed control plane connector integration is also available for managed control planes in a Space. Read the MCP Connector documentation to learn more about the feature.

MCP Connector functions similarly when running in Space-managed control plane versus a SaaS-managed control plane. The one difference is you must provide a secret containing the Space-managed control plane kubeconfig at install-time. The install command becomes the following:

up ctp connector install <ctp-name> <namespace-in-ctp> --control-plane-secret=<secret-ctp-kubeconfig>

Or if you want to install with Helm, you must provide:

  • mcp.account, provide an Upbound org account name.
  • mcp.name, provide the name of the managed control plane you want to connect to.
  • mcp.namespace, provide the namespace in your managed control plane to sync to.
  • mcp.secret.name, provide the name of a secret in your app cluster containing the kubeconfig of the Space-managed control plane you want to connect to.
helm install --wait mcp-connector upbound-beta/mcp-connector -n kube-system /
  --set mcp.account='your-upbound-org-account'
  --set mcp.name='your-control-plane-name'
  --set mcp.namespace='your-app-ns-1'
  --set mcp.secret.name='name-of-secret-with-kubeconfig'
