Management Service

The installed Management Service exposes kubectl via an MQTT broker on the cloud side. See Edge Compute Platform Installation for more information.

This section describes how to use the Management Service directly via the MQTT broker. When managing the Edge Compute Platform from SmartWorks Studio, this communication is taken care of under the hood.

The topics to publish and subscribe to and what message format to use is described in Topics and Messages.

Examples of kubectl commands to run are found in Examples.

Note: Useful documentation for the kubectl CLI, including a kubectl cheat sheet, can be found on the kubernetes website.
