Accessing the GKE Explorer
If you're using Google Cloud to host your Kubernetes resources, you'll find the GKE Explorer (as a panel accessible through the Kubernetes explorer under the Cloud Code view ) useful to accomplish basic GKE tasks like viewing existing clusters (Standard and Autopilot), creating new clusters, and setting active clusters.
Within the GKE Explorer, the following tasks are available:
- Creating a new cluster
- Pinning a project
- Refreshing the GKE Explorer
- Signing out of the Cloud SDK
- Deleting a cluster (by right-clicking on a cluster)
Setting an active cluster (by right-clicking on a cluster)
For more advanced tasks, you can open the cluster in Google Cloud Console, using the icon next to the cluster listing in the Explorer .
