How do I edit or upgrade clusters created via RKE Templates?

This document (000020180) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


  • RKE1 cluster managed via RKE templates on Rancher 2.x.


  • Unable to change certain Kubernetes Cluster Options under the Cluster Management -> Cluster -> Edit config when managing clusters via RKE templates.


If you need to make changes or upgrade your clusters managed via RKE templates, you need to perform the following steps:

  • Navigate to Cluster management -> RKE1 Configuration -> RKE templates.
  • Click the three-dot menu to make a new revision of your existing template (select Clone revision).
  • Add the revision name, make the required changes, and save it.
  • After saving the revision, navigate back to Cluster management -> Select the cluster -> Edit config. Under "Cluster Options", there will be a drop-down menu to select the version of the template you want to use.
  • Select your new version and Save.
  • Once saved, your cluster will be updated with the changes you have made.
