Workspace Platform Applications

How workspace platform applications work

When attaching a cluster, Kommander deploys certain platform applications on the newly attached cluster. Operators can use the Kommander UI to customize which platform applications to deploy to the attached clusters in a given workspace.

The following table describes the list of platform applications that are deployed on attachment.

Currently, the monitoring stack is deployed by default. The logging stack is not.

Customize a workspace’s applications

You can customize the applications that are deployed to a workspace’s clusters using the Kommander UI. Access the applications page by going to the specific workspace, then opening the Applications page from the sidebar menu.

This takes you to the Applications page which displays all applications that can be deployed or uninstalled.

To use the CLI to deploy or uninstall applications, see Application Deployment

IMPORTANT: There may be dependencies between the applications, which are listed in the workspace platform application dependencies documentation. Review them carefully prior to customizing to ensure that the applications are deployed successfully.

NOTE: Currently, Kommander only supports a single deployment of cert-manager per cluster. Because of this, cert-manager cannot be installed on Konvoy managed AWS clusters.

NOTE: Only a single deployment of traefik per cluster is supported.

NOTE: Kommander automatically manages the deployment of traefik-forward-auth and kube-oidc-proxy when clusters are attached to the workspace. These applications are not shown in the Kommander UI.
