rpk cluster config import

Redpanda does not support importing cluster-specific identification (such as cluster_id) with this command.

Import cluster configuration from a file.

Import configuration from a YAML file, usually generated with corresponding export command. This downloads the current cluster configuration, calculates the difference with the YAML file, and updates any properties that were changed. If a property is removed from the YAML file, it is reset to its default value.
