This is a multi-part, self paced quick start exercise to explore the platform's capabilities for importing and taking over the cluster lifecycle management of Azure AKS clusters.

After an Azure AKS cluster has been imported into the controller, you can allow the controller to takeover the lifecycle management of the AKS cluster. This allows the controller to perform all of the cluster lifecycle management functions like scale, add node pools, and upgrade. The controller retrieves information about the imported AKS clusters to make the cluster's infrastructure equivalent to the managed AKS clusters provisioned through the controller.
