Hi there!

We currently use the upstream kubernetes validation logic linked below.

TL;DR - 63 chars max + “a DNS-1035 label must consist of lower case alphanumeric characters or ‘-’, start with an alphabetic character, and end with an alphanumeric character”

https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/blob/7f23a743e8c23ac6489340bbb34fa6f1d392db9d/staging/src/k8s.io/apimachinery/pkg/util/validation/validation.go#L145-L162
