The AWS cloud provider provides the interface between a Kubernetes cluster and AWS service APIs. This project allows a Kubernetes cluster to provision, monitor and remove resources necessary for operation of the cluster.


The flag --cloud-provider=external needs to be passed to kubelet, kube-apiserver, and kube-controller-manager. You should not pass the --cloud-provider flag to aws-cloud-controller-manager.

IAM Policy

For the aws-cloud-controller-manager to be able to communicate to AWS APIs, you will need to create a few IAM policies for your EC2 instances. The master policy is a bit open and can be scaled back depending on the use case. Adjust these based on your needs.

  1. Master Policy
  "Version": "2012-10-17",
  "Statement": [
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Action": [
      "Resource": [

  1. Node Policy
      "Version": "2012-10-17",
      "Statement": [
              "Effect": "Allow",
              "Action": [
              "Resource": "*"

Proper Node Names

The cloud provider currently uses the instance private DNS name as the node name, but this is subject to change in the future.


Currently the implementation of the cloud provider is found in, and vendored into this repository. In the future, the implementation will be migrated here and out of Kubernetes core.
