I have two kubernetes clusters on google container engine but on seperate google accounts (one using my company's email and another using my personal email). I attempted to switch from one cluster to another. I did this by:<ol><li>
Logging in with my other email address
$ gcloud init
Getting new kubectl credentials
gcloud container cluster get-credentials
Test to see if connected to new cluster
$ kubectl get po
However, I was still not able to get the kubernetes resources in the cluster. The error I received was:
the server doesn't have a resource type "pods"
This occurs because although I logged in with the new credentials... kubectl isn't using the new credentials. In order to change the login/access credentials that kubectl will use to access your cluster you need to run the following command:
gcloud auth application-default login
You will then get the following response:
Your browser has been opened to visit: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%3A8085%2F&prompt=select_account&respons e_type=code&client_id=...& scope=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.googleapis.com%2Fauth%2Fuserinfo.email +https%3A%2F%2Fwww.googleapis.com%2Fauth%2Fcloud-platform&access_type=offline Credentials saved to file: [/Users/.../.config/gcloud/application_default_credentials.json] These credentials will be used by any library that requests Application Default Credentials.
Then get cluster credentials
gcloud container clusters get-credentials [cluster name/id]
You should now be able to access the cluster using kubectl.
