Kubeless - Deploy

The sls deploy command deploys your entire service via the Kubeless API. Run this command when you have made service changes (i.e., you edited serverless.yml).

Use serverless deploy function -f my-function when you have made code changes and you want to quickly upload your updated code to your Kubernetes cluster.

serverless deploy

This is the simplest deployment usage possible. With this command Serverless will deploy your service to the default Kubernetes cluster in your kubeconfig file.


  • --config or -c Name of your configuration file, if other than serverless.yml|.yaml|.js|.json.
  • --verbose Shows all stack events during deployment, and display any Stack Output.
  • --package or -p The path of a previously packaged deployment to get deployed (skips packaging step).
  • --function or -f Invoke deploy function (see above). Convenience shortcut - cannot be used with --package.


After the serverless deploy command runs all created deployment artifacts are placed in the .serverless folder of the service.
