how are you building your clusters? you don't need to use
aws-iam-authenticator
- you can populate your
KUBECONFIG
with
aws eks get-token --clusterName
instead, but one of them needs to be in your kubeconfig

Hi Jax ,Thanks for the reply we building a rest interface where user can send the rest request to create a cluster thats why we dont want to install any aws tool where the program is running .
aws eks get-token --clusterName
will still require aws to be install on the macine where we running the pulumi code right ?

Yes, this is a limitation of aws eks, we don’t have any control over it
