The clusters may be local (for instance: minikube, Docker Desktop) or external (for instance: AKS, GKE, Docker Enterprise, EKS, Rancher, or OpenShift). Clusters may be added just by importing the kubeconfig along with details of the cluster.

The lens brings built-in and multi-tenant Prometheus setup that respects role-based access control RBAC for each user.
