Knative: Operator’s Handbook

Overview

Knative Eventing provides primitives to enable late-binding event producers and event consumers.

An event has the format of CloudEvents.

An event producer can be internal to the cluster. It can construct and send events manually. It can also be external and its events can be read and converted to CloudEvents by a Source.

An event consumer is either a Knative or Kubernetes Service.

An event can be delivered to a Service in different delivery methods.
