Note: As the pace of change in public cloud features is high, constantly changing and evolving, the compatibility for Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes is correct at GA of the product. Best effort basis during errata cycle for public cloud vendors introduced breaking changes (intended or unintended) to existing functionality. Any other changes or additions would be considered as a Request For Enhancement (RFE), which is evaluated for potential inclusion in future releases. An RFE can be requested via standard support mechanisms.
