Managed Cert Manager

Feature state: beta

Cert Manager integration

Avisi Cloud Kubernetes supports a managed cert-manager addon, which allows you to easily use and provision LetsEncrypt Certificates within your Avisi Cloud Kubernetes cluster.

What is Cert Manager?

Cert-manager is a powerful and extensible X.509 certificate controller for Kubernetes workloads. It will obtain certificates from a variety of Issuers, both popular public Issuers as well as private Issuers, and ensure the certificates are valid and up-to-date, and will attempt to renew certificates at a configured time before expiry. Cert-manager supports, among other things, provisioning LetsEncrypt certificates for Ingress resources within your Kubernetes Clusters.



Enabling the Cert Manager AddOn

You can enable the managed cert-manager feature for your Avisi Cloud Kubernetes cluster through either the API or the Console. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the details page of your cluster in the Console.
  2. Navigate to the Networking tab.
  3. Enable the cert-manager addon.

Once enabled, cert-manager will be up and running within a few minutes. Avisi Cloud will keep it up-to-date, so you don’t have to worry about managing upgrades or security patches.

Note that in order to use the managed cert-manager feature, you must have at least one node pool set up within your cluster.
