The commands under doctl kubernetes cluster are for the management of Kubernetes clusters.

A typical workflow is to use doctl kubernetes cluster create to create the cluster on DigitalOcean’s infrastructure, then call doctl kubernetes cluster kubeconfig to configure kubectl to connect to the cluster. You are then able to use kubectl to create and manage workloads.
