The ouctl utility simplifies the deployment of OpenUnison's helm charts. It also makes it much easier to onboard new clusters into a multicluster environment. When using this utility, you do not need to create a Secret. It is available on Windows, Linux, and macOS.


Rename the downloaded file to ouctl (or ouctl.exe on windows).


On both macOS and Linux, you can use homebrew to install the ouctl utility:

brew install openunison/ouctl/ouctl

kubectl plugin

The ouctl utility can be installed as a kubectl plugin using krew as a self-hosted plugin (the krew project does not accept installation utilities). This method supports Linux, macOS, and Windows.

curl > /tmp/ouctl.yaml
kubectl krew install --manifest=/tmp/ouctl.yaml
