Upgrading from 2.12 to 2.13

Helm Charts


Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP) 2.13 ships with cert-manager 0.12, which changed the API group for its CRDs from to This requires manual intervention and a short time frame where no certificates can be created when upgrading. Before upgrading, create a backup of all cert-manager resources (certificates, issuers, …) because their CRDs will have to be recreated.

After creating the backup, delete the cert-manager chart, delete the CRDs and re-install the chart (which also re-installs the CRDs):

helm --tiller-namespace kubermatic-installer delete --purge cert-manager
kubectl get crd | awk '/certmanager/ {print $1}' | xargs kubectl delete crd

cd kubermatic-installer/charts/cert-manager
helm --tiller-namespace kubermatic-installer upgrade --install --namespace cert-manager --values YOUR_VALUES_YAML_HERE cert-manager .
