the file has no api or kind etc associated with it, would it still kubectl apply?
at least not the way its built with the gui

Oh, that is an RKE cluster. That you cannot apply. I thought you were talking about a cluster.yaml like the ones that do get applied by Rancher.

Isn't this how we can do for RKE? (maybe I am misunderstanding your question):
rke up --config <path to your cluster.yaml>

Yes, but that creates a new cluster and doesn't put it in Rancher.

I will say that what you are trying to accomplish is possible, but you need the cluster.yaml that Rancher uses. There is also a Rancher terraform provider that can help you accomplish this.

ya i might end up just rewriting in terraform
just dont like the idea of maintaining two states (terraform + rancher)

What I would do: create the cluster that you want to create in Rancher, but before creating it, look at the YAML. There is a button for this in the UI. That is essentially the YAML that you would need to apply. It would take some experimenting to get right, but that is how I would go about it.
