acs kubernetes version 1.7.7 enabled prometheus metrics for skydns

Copper Contributor



we created a kubernetes cluster in the azure west europe region with the terraform azurerm container_service provider.

That spin up a kubernetes cluster with the version 1.7.7. 


We like to enable the skydns prometheus metrics endpoint. By providing the PROMETHEUS_PORT 

environment variable in the 'kube-dns-v20' deployment for the 'kubedns' container. 

The default azure kubernetes provisioning doesn't enable the prometheus metrics endpoint of the skydns.


The kubernetes provisioning is done by the azure container service.

How we can customize the kubernetes dns provisioning to achieve that ?


Best regards
