(not sure my question belongs here)
Hi there and happy new year
I’ve read page GitOps with GitLab: What you need to know about the Flux CD integration page Tutorial: Set up Flux for GitOps | GitLab, page Using GitOps with a Kubernetes cluster | GitLab and I viewed the 2 youtube videos that explain how to setup flux on gitlab but I’m failing to understand what brings adding the agentk to a kubernetes cluster. The video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjPVRM-N_PQ does not mention the installation of the gitlab kubernetes agent.
I’m also confused because in the past (about 1 year ago), I’ve tested gitlab agent for kubernetes to deploy manifests in a namespace, it was almost doing the same job.
Even after having played a couple with flux in gitlab, I don’t understand the benefits.
Can someone clarify all what the role of these components ? Iis gitlab k8s agent still necessary ?
