Flink Operator Roadmap #

This page is intended to present an overview of the general direction of the Flink Kubernetes Operator project, and the larger new features on our radar. It’s not a comprehensive list and might be slightly outdated at any given time. Please check JIRA for the actual work items and the Flink mailing lists for feature planning and discussion.

What’s Next? #

Our intention is to advance further on the Operator Maturity Model by adding more dynamic/automatic features

  • Standalone deployment mode support FLIP-225
  • Auto-scaling using Horizontal Pod AutoScaler
  • Dynamic change of watched namespaces
  • Pluggable Status and Event reporters (Making it easier to integrate with proprietary control planes)
  • Improved Savepoint management & periodic triggering
