Cluster API Azure Roadmap

The best place to see what’s coming within a 1-2 month timeline is in the public milestones. All open items for the the next numbered milestone (e.g. 1.15) are visualized in the Milestone-Open project board view and planned at the very beginning of the 2-month release cycle. This planning and discussion begins at Cluster API Azure Office Hours after a major release. Active community PR contributions are prioritized throughout the release, but unplanned work will arise. Hence the items in the milestone are a rough estimate which may change. The “next” milestone is a very rough collection of issues for the milestone after the current numbered one to help prioritize upcoming work.

High Level Vision

CAPZ is the official production-ready Cluster API implementation to administer the entire lifecycle of self-managed or managed Kubernetes clusters (AKS) on Azure. Cluster API extends the Kubernetes API to provide tooling consistent across on-premises and cloud providers to build and maintain Kubernetes clusters at scale while working with GitOps and the surrounding tooling ecosystem. See related blog post.


There are a number of large priority “Epics” which may span across milestones which we believe are important to providing CAPZ users an even better experience and improving the vision. The CAPZ project board roadmap view tracks the larger “epic issues” and their progress.
