How to upgrade your Kubernetes Kapsule cluster

Published on 21 December 2022
Identity and Access Management (IAM):

If you have activated IAM, you may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have created a Kubernetes Kapsule cluster running on a Kubernetes version older than the latest release
  1. Click Kubernetes under Containers on the side menu. A list of your Kubernetes Kapsule clusters displays.
  2. Click the cluster name you wish to upgrade the Kubernetes version for. The cluster information page displays.

    Alternatively you can click «See more Icon» > More info to display the cluster information page.

  3. Click Upgrade next to the Kubernetes version of your cluster. A pop-up displays.
  4. Select the Kubernetes version you want to upgrade to from the drop-down list. Tick the Upgrade cluster node pools as well checkbox if you want to upgrade the version of Kubernetes on the node pools in your cluster to the same version.

    Be careful when upgrading the Kubernetes versions of your node pools, as it may lead to data loss on data stored locally on any node.

  5. Click Upgrade.

    It is not possible to downgrade your Kubernetes version once it has been upgraded.
