# ServiceAccounts

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

For more information about Service Accounts checkout the Kubernetes User Guide(opens new window) .

# Create a Service Account

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

Let's create an example Service Account: on kubernetic namespace:

kubectl create serviceaccount example --namespace kubernetic

Pod Management > Accounts: Example Service Account

# Cleanup

Delete the example Service Account:

kubectl delete serviceaccount example --namespace kubernetic
