KEI Basics

KEI provides a K8s consistent interface to deploy and manage workload on the Section Composable Edge Cloud. This guide will walk you through the basics.

Creating An Environment

To get started using KEI you will first need to create an environment in Section. This can be done using our API. For more information on the steps to start using KEI please follow our Getting Started with KEI tutorial.

KEI environment endpoint URL

Every environment you create in Section will automatically generate a KEI endpoint. This is the endpoint you will use to communicate with Section when using kubectl. This endpoint is displayed in the Section console on the environment page.

Deploy a Container

Once you have created an environment and retrieved your KEI endpoint you can now deploy containers to the Section platform. To do this please follow the Deploy a container using KEI tutorial.

Get Logs

To print the logs for a container running on Section you can use the kubectl logs command:

kubectl logs [pod name]

For more information on kubectl commands please see the Kubernetes Documentation

Describe

To show details of a specific resource or group of resources running on Section you can use the kubectl describe command:

kubectl describe [pod name]

For more information on kubectl commands please see the Kubernetes Documentation
