Public preview: AKS Private Link Service integration

Published date: May 17, 2022

AKS now supports the creation of Private Link Service (PLS) to Kubernetes service objects via annotations. Add the appropriate PLS annotation(s) to the service manifest file which also has an annotation of azure-load-balancer-internal and service type of LoadBalancer. This simplifies PLS creation as you will no longer have to hunt down the Azure Load Balancer IP configuration associated with the Kubernetes service to create the PLS. Instead, AKS will provision the PLS resource with the Kubernetes service. 

The PLS resource can also be created and associated to a Kubernetes service after the service has been provisioned by simply adding the PLS annotation to the service manifest file.
