Hi KUDO Community!

We were recently speaking with an organization that is eager to author their own operators, as well as to leverage the extant community operators.

They had a few questions around RBAC in KUDO and how KUDO today and in the future would conform to their needs. Specifically:
  • Cluster users should be allowed to spin up KUDO Operators from a pre-defined catalog only.
  • Cluster users will not have admin privileges.
  • Cluster users should only be able to deploy to the namespace(s) to which they have permission to deploy resources.
What (if any) of these features are possible with KUDO today? Are any on the roadmap for future releases? I read the FAQ around RBAC, but I confess I wasn't able to discern the answers to the above questions.

Any guidance much appreciated!

Mike

Hi Michael! Sorry for the delayed response.

1. "only" is fairly strict, but KUDO clients can set which repos they are accessing. Since KUDO installations are currently client side, there's no protecting against that. Kubernetes admins who want to limit it will want to set up RBAC around OperatorVersion creation, and have admins curate that (an instance can be created as long as there's an OV to match)
2. This is normal Kubernetes RBAC and KUDO doesn't do anything to override that.
3. Same as 2.
