Integrations with Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA) on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) (Preview)

The Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA) add-on integrates with features provided by Azure and open source projects.


AKS preview features are available on a self-service, opt-in basis. Previews are provided "as is" and "as available," and they're excluded from the service-level agreements and limited warranty. AKS previews are partially covered by customer support on a best-effort basis. As such, these features aren't meant for production use. For more information, see the following support articles:


Integrations with open source projects are not covered by the AKS support policy.

Observe your autoscaling with Kubernetes events

KEDA automatically emits Kubernetes events allowing customers to operate their application autoscaling.

To learn about the available metrics, we recommend reading the KEDA documentation.

Scalers for Azure services

KEDA can integrate with various tools and services through a rich catalog of 50+ KEDA scalers. It supports leading cloud platforms (such as Azure) and open-source technologies such as Redis and Kafka.

It leverages the following scalers for Azure services:

Next to the built-in scalers, you can install external scalers yourself to autoscale on other Azure services:

However, these external scalers aren't supported as part of the add-on and rely on community support.
