Support and troubleshooting for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

Self help troubleshooting

The AKS troubleshooting documentation provides guidance for how to diagnose and resolve issues that you might encounter when using AKS. These articles cover how to troubleshoot deployment failures, security-related problems, connection issues, and more.

Post a question on Microsoft Q&A

Azure's preferred destination for community support, Microsoft Q&A, allows you to ask technical questions and engage with Azure engineers, Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs), partners, and customers. When you ask a question, make sure you use the azure-kubernetes-service tag. You can also submit your own answers and help other community members with their questions.

If you can't find an answer to your problem using search, you can submit a new question to Microsoft Q&A and tag it with the appropriate Azure service and area.

The following table lists the tags for AKS and related services:

Area Tag
Azure Kubernetes Service azure-kubernetes-service
