Labels and Annotations

Labels And Annotations In Kubernetes

Labels and Annotations are one of the main foundations for Kubernetes. They both provide a way for adding additional metadata to our Kubernetes Objects.

Labels are used for grouping, viewing, and operating. Each object can have a set of key/value labels defined. Each Key must be unique for a given object. Annotations provide a place to store non-identifying metadata for Kubernetes Objects. Annotations are also key/value pairs like Labels.
