Project Role Bindings

Project Role Bindings grant access to a specified Project Role for a specified group of people.

Project Role Bindings grant access to a specified Project Role for a specified group of people.

Configure Project Role Bindings - UI Method

Before you can create a Project Role Binding, ensure you have created a Group. A Kommander Group can contain one or several Identity Provider users or groups.

You can assign a role to this Kommander Group:

  1. From the Projects page, select your project.

  2. Select the Role Bindings tab, then select Add Roles next to the group you want.

  3. Select the Role, or Roles, you want from the drop-down menu, and then select Save.

Configure Project Role Bindings - CLI Method

A Project Policy can also be created using kubectl:

cat << EOF | kubectl create -f -
apiVersion: workspaces.kommander.mesosphere.io/v1alpha1
kind: VirtualGroupProjectRoleBinding
metadata:
  generateName: projectpolicy-
  namespace: ${projectns}
spec:
  projectRoleRef:
    name: ${projectrole}
  virtualGroupRef:
    name: ${virtualgroup}
EOF

Configure Project Role Bindings to Bind to WorkspaceRoles - CLI Method

You can also create a Project Policy to bind to a WorkspaceRole in certain instances. To list the WorkspaceRoles that you can bind to a Project, run the following command:

kubectl get workspaceroles -n ${workspacens} -o=jsonpath='{.items[?(@.metadata.annotations.workspace\.kommander\.d2iq\.io\/project-default-workspace-role-for=="${projectns}")].metadata.name}'

You can bind to any of the above WorkspaceRoles by setting spec.workspaceRoleRef in the project policy:

cat << EOF | kubectl create -f -
apiVersion: workspaces.kommander.mesosphere.io/v1alpha1
kind: VirtualGroupProjectRoleBinding
metadata:
  generateName: projectpolicy-
  namespace: ${projectns}
spec:
  workspaceRoleRef:
    name: ${workspacerole}
  virtualGroupRef:
    name: ${virtualgroup}
EOF

Note that you must specify either workspaceRoleRef or projectRoleRef to be validated by the admission webhook. Specifying both values is not valid and will cause an error.

Ensure the projectns, workspacens, projectrole (or workspacerole) and the virtualgroup variables are set before executing the command.

You can set them using the following commands (for a Kommander Group called user1 and a Project Role called admin, and after setting the projectns as explained in the previous section):

virtualgroup=$(kubectl -n kommander get virtualgroup.kommander.mesosphere.io -o jsonpath='{.items[?(@.metadata.generateName=="user1-")].metadata.name}')

projectns=$(kubectl -n ${workspacens} get projects.workspaces.kommander.mesosphere.io -o jsonpath='{.items[?(@.metadata.generateName=="project1-")].status.namespaceRef.name}')

projectrole=$(kubectl -n ${projectns} get projectroles.workspaces.kommander.mesosphere.io -o jsonpath='{.items[?(@.metadata.generateName=="admin-")].metadata.name}')

When a Project Role Binding is created, Kommander creates a Kubernetes FederatedRoleBinding on the Kubernetes cluster where Kommander is running:

kubectl -n ${projectns} get federatedrolebindings.types.kubefed.io projectpolicy-gtct4-rdkwq -o yaml
apiVersion: types.kubefed.io/v1beta1
kind: FederatedRoleBinding
metadata:
  creationTimestamp: "2020-06-04T16:19:27Z"

    status: "True"
    type: Propagation

Then, if you run the following command on a Kubernetes cluster associated with the Project, you’ll see a Kubernetes RoleBinding Object, in the corresponding namespace:

kubectl -n ${projectns} get rolebinding projectpolicy-gtct4-rdkwq -o yaml
apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
kind: RoleBinding
