doctl kubernetes cluster list [flags]




Retrieves the following details about all Kubernetes clusters that are on your account:

  • A unique ID for the cluster
  • A human-readable name for the cluster
  • The slug identifying the region where the Kubernetes cluster is located
  • The slug identifying the cluster’s Kubernetes version. If set to a minor version, the latest patch version for that minor version is returned. For example, if the cluster is set to 1.14, the command would return 1.14.6-do.1. If it is set to latest, the latest published version is used.
  • A boolean value indicating whether the cluster automatically upgrades to new patch releases during its maintenance window.
  • An object containing a “state” attribute whose value is set to a string indicating the current status of the node. Potential values: running, provisioning, errored.- A list of node pools available inside the cluster


The following example retrieves the list of Kubernetes clusters for your account and uses the --format flag to return only the name and endpoint for each cluster:

doctl kubernetes cluster list --format Name,Endpoint
