eksctl Setup

To complete the workshop, you first need to install eksctl v0.53.0 or newer. Instructions for doing this can be found at eksctl.io. eksctl (pronounced “eks control”) is a simple CLI tool for creating clusters on EKS. It is written in Go, uses CloudFormation, was created by Weaveworks and it welcomes contributions from the community.

If you are using your own AWS account, you will need permissions to create EKS clusters plus admin rights within your EKS cluster to configure configuration rules and install agents. Ensure you have authority within your organization to do this in your tenant.
