Enable EKS endpoints

Specify EKS endpoints for an Infrastructure
AWS SDKs and the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) automatically use the default public endpoint for each service in an AWS Region. However, when you create an Infrastructure in DuploCloud, you can specify a custom Private endpoint, a custom Public endpoint, or Both public and private custom endpoints. If you specify no endpoints, the default Public endpoint is used.
Modifying endpoints can incur an outage of up to thirty (30) minutes in your EKS cluster. Plan your update accordingly to minimize disruption for your users.
For more information about AWS Endpoints, see the AWS documentation.
