This method is the quickest way to get started with ECK if you have full administrative access to the Kubernetes cluster. The Quickstart document describes how to proceed with this method. When you run the
kubectl command listed in Deploy ECK in your Kubernetes cluster, the following components are installed or updated:
CustomResourceDefinitionobjects for all supported resource types (Elasticsearch, Kibana, APM Server, Enterprise Search, Beats, Elastic Agent, Elastic Maps Server, and Logstash).
elastic-systemto hold all operator resources.
ClusterRoleBindingto allow the operator to manage resources throughout the cluster.
ValidatingWebhookConfigurationto validate Elastic custom resources on admission.
elastic-systemnamespace to run the operator application.
