Installs kube2iam to provide IAM credentials to pods based on annotations.


$ helm install stable/kube2iam


This chart bootstraps a kube2iam deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.


  • Kubernetes 1.4+ with Beta APIs enabled

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

$ helm install stable/kube2iam --name my-release

The command deploys kube2iam on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the kube2iam chart and their default values.

Parameter Description Default
affinity affinity configuration for pod assignment {}
extraArgs Additional container arguments {}
extraEnv Additional container environment variables {}
host.ip IP address of host $(HOST_IP)
host.iptables Add iptables rule false

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install stable/kube2iam --name my-release \

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the above parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install stable/kube2iam --name my-release -f values.yaml

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml

You can’t perform that action at this time.
