Service Accounts

A service account provides an identity for processes that run in a Pod.

For more information about Service Accounts checkout the Kubernetes User Guide.

Create a Service Account

Kubernetes will generate automatically a default Service Account on each Namespace.

Let's create a test Service Account:

kubectl create serviceaccount test

During the creation of test Service Account, a test-token Secret was also generated and associated with the new Service Account.

You can now delete the Service Account. The test-token Secret is also deleted together with the Service Account.
