Secure and isolated namespaces

With Okteto Cloud you can create and manage secure and isolated Kubernetes namespaces for you and your team.

Okteto Cloud will take care of all the required RBAC roles and bindings, resources quotas and limits, pod security policies and network policies so everyone in your team can safely deploy and develop applications in Kubernetes.

Manage your namespaces

You can create up to three namespaces per account. Go to the Okteto Cloud UI and click on the (+) symbol on the left.

You can also create a namespace directly from the command line with the okteto create namespace command.

Switch your kubectl configuration to point to your namespaces with the okteto namespace command. If no argument is passed, it configures kubectl to point to your personal namespace.

Once you’re done, you can also delete your namespace via the UI, or with the okteto delete namespace command.

Share your namespace

By default, you’ll be the only person with access to your namespaces. Invite your team mates to enable true real time collaboration.

To share a namespace go to the Okteto Cloud UI and select the namespace you want to share and press the Share button (you’ll find it in the main bar at the top).

In the Share dialog, type the email address of the team members you want to share this namespace with. Once you press save, Okteto Cloud will update the necessary permissions and notify your team mates via email.
