How to Enable Pod Presets

This document (000020125) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.





This how-to article outlines how to enable pod presets on your cluster. This is done by enabling the PodPreset admission plugin and the API for the kube-apiserver.


  • Kubernetes version 1.10 and above
  • Access to edit the cluster in yaml or the cluster.yaml file you used with RKE.


Get to the cluster yaml in Rancher by editing the cluster and selecting "edit as yaml" or opening the RKE cluster.yml file. Modify the kube-api section to resemble the following and hit save or run up:

      enable-admission-plugins: PodPreset,NamespaceLifecycle,LimitRanger,ServiceAccount,DefaultStorageClass,DefaultTolerationSeconds,MutatingAdmissionWebhook,ValidatingAdmissionWebhook,ResourceQuota,NodeRestriction,Priority,TaintNodesByCondition,PersistentVolumeClaimResize

Notice that and PodPreset are added to the runtime-config and admission plugins.

More details can be found in the kubernetes docs on pod presets.
