Palette supports the open-source Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project Crossplane. Crossplane transforms Kubernetes clusters into universal control planes, extending the Kubernetes API and enabling infrastructure resource provisioning and management across major infrastructure providers.

These resources, called Managed Resources (MR) within the Crossplane environment, are essentially Kubernetes Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs) that represent infrastructure resources as native Kubernetes objects. Because they are Kubernetes objects, you can interact with them using standard commands like kubectl describe. When users create a managed resource, Crossplane interacts with the infrastructure provider API to request the creation of the resource within the provider's environment.

Palette Provider

You can use the Palette Crossplane Provider to interact with the Palette API and create resources declaratively.

Refer to the Palette Provider page for a complete list of managed resources and examples.
