Customizing control plane configuration with kubeadm

The kubeadm ClusterConfiguration object exposes the field extraArgs that can override the default flags passed to control plane components such as the APIServer, ControllerManager and Scheduler. The components are defined using the following fields:

The extraArgs field consist of key: value pairs. To override a flag for a control plane component:

  1. Add the appropriate fields to your configuration.
  2. Add the flags to override to the field.
