Kubectl Token for non-administrators

Accessing kubectl without administrator privileges

If you don't have administrator privileges, use this procedure to access kubeconfig using the kubectl token. kubeconfig is a YAML file that stores cluster authentication information for kubectl. It contains a list of contexts to which kubectl refers when running commands. By default, kubeconfig is saved in the $HOME/ directory in the Linux operating system.

Before beginning, refer to this article for more information aboutkubeconfig.
