Creating a Tenant#

Bill is a cluster admin who receives a new request from Aurora Solutions CTO asking for a new tenant for Anna's team.

Bill creates a new tenant called bluesky in the cluster:

kubectl create -f - << EOF
apiVersion: tenantoperator.stakater.com/v1beta2
kind: Tenant
metadata:
  name: bluesky
spec:
  owners:
    users:
    - anna@aurora.org
  editors:
    users:
    - john@aurora.org
    groups:
    - alpha
  quota: small
  sandbox: false
EOF

Bill checks if the new tenant is created:

kubectl get tenants.tenantoperator.stakater.com bluesky
NAME       STATE    AGE
bluesky    Active   3m

Anna can now log in to the cluster and check if she can create namespaces

kubectl auth can-i create namespaces
yes

However, cluster resources are not accessible to Anna

kubectl auth can-i get namespaces
no

kubectl auth can-i get persistentvolumes
no

Including the Tenant resource

kubectl auth can-i get tenants.tenantoperator.stakater.com
no

Assign multiple users as tenant owner#

In the example above, Bill assigned the ownership of bluesky to Anna. If another user, e.g. Anthony needs to administer bluesky, than Bill can assign the ownership of tenant to that user as well:

kubectl apply -f - << EOF
apiVersion: tenantoperator.stakater.com/v1beta2
kind: Tenant
metadata:
  name: bluesky
spec:
  owners:
    users:
    - anna@aurora.org
    - anthony@aurora.org
  editors:
    users:
    - john@aurora.org
    groups:
    - alpha
  quota: small
  sandbox: false
EOF

With the configuration above, Anthony can log in to the cluster and execute

kubectl auth can-i create namespaces
yes
