Hi @87d0a37a619347089c9a95b3d8bca,

I’ve not actually done it however after some digging it seems like the only thing you need to do is:

  1. npm install --save node-red-contrib-kubernetes-client

The nodes are properly documented in Node-RED itself. In short there are 2 nodes:

kubernetes-client-watch - produces messages for configured watch endpoints. kubernetes-client-http - allows complete interaction with Kubernetes API via ALL HTTP endpoints and verbs etc.
