After adding a cluster, you’ll be able to manage your Kubernetes assets via the Kubernetes tab on the left pane. Clicking on Kubernetes icon will take you to your services dashboard.

You can update it from your Kubernetes services window - Just hit the “edit” icon and update your service using the same steps as in “Add new service” section.

- Select Kubernetes (Beta) option in the deployment step drop down, and define desired cluster, namespace, service and branches for deployment.
