# Getting Started
Before you get started using KUTTL, you need to have a running Kubernetes cluster setup. If you already have a cluster there are no prerequisites. If you want to use the mocked control plane or Kind, you will need Kind (opens new window).
- Setup a Kubernetes Cluster in version
- Install kubectl (opens new window) in version
# Install KUTTL CLI
kubectl kuttl plugin. To do so, please follow the CLI plugin installation instructions.
The KUTTL CLI leverages the kubectl plugin system, which gives you all its functionality under
# Using KUTTL
Once you have a running cluster with
kubectl installed along with the KUTTL CLI plugin, you can run tests with KUTTL like so:
$ kubectl kuttl test path/to/test-suite
