Hi there,

The master
API-server is currently not configurable in this way.

With a Managed Kubernetes Cluster, the control plane configuration is managed by DigitalOcean. You cannot modify the control plane files, feature gates, or admission controllers.

For more information check out the Managed Elements of DigitalOcean Kubernetes:

If you want to have full control over your cluster, you could install Kubernetes as per this tutorial here:

That way the cluster will be unmanaged and you will have full control over all components.

Kubernetes is a container orchestration system that manages containers at scale. Initially developed by Google based on its experience running containers in production, Kubernetes is open source and actively developed by a community around the world. In this guide, you will set up a Kubernetes cluster from scratch using Ansible and Kubeadm, and then deploy a containerized Nginx application to it.
