Installing Lightrun in Kubernetes

Since Lightrun works on the application level, there's no need for any extra configuration while installing Lightrun in Kubernetes - you can simply follow the Docker container installation instructions for the language your application is written in.

Once your Dockerfile is ready, you can re-push the images into the relevant registry (like Docker hub), and Lightrun will work out of the box.

Lightrun Kubernetes Operator

The Lightrun Kubernetes (K8s) Operator is a Kubernetes operator provided by Lightrun to help install Lightrun agents in your Kubernetes workloads without having to change your docker or manifest files. You can find instructions on how to set up the Lightrun Kubernetes Operator here.
