Rancher 2.x tiller visibility


I created a GKE cluster which I then imported into rancher. I then deploy a redis using helm from the UI. Redis came up and I can see it using kubectl. What I don’t see is the tiller pod into kubernetes.

So my question is, am I missing something. Is helm available from the command line?



It seems the answer here is that tiller is not visible by using the helm client. The way to deploy helm charts is through rancher (UI or cli). The benefit of this approach is the much better authz that rancher provides.
