Cluster information:

CNI and version: weave-kube:2.8.1
CRI and version: v1.21.0

Hi,

I use ClusterRole and ClusterRoleBinding to limit some one access Kubernetes , and YAML like this:

apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
kind: ClusterRole
metadata:
  name: cluster-role-bin-developer
rules:
- apiGroups: [""]
  resources: ["pods", "pods/log"]
  verbs: ["get", "watch", "list", "delete"]
- apiGroups: ["apps"]
  resources: ["deployments"]
  verbs: ["get", "list"]
- apiGroups: [""]
  resources: ["namespaces"]
  # nonResourceURLs: ["bin-app-*"]
  verbs: ["list"]

---
apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
kind: ClusterRoleBinding
metadata:
  name: cluster-role-bind-bin-developer
subjects:
- kind: User
  name: bin-developer
  apiGroup: rbac.authorization.k8s.io
roleRef:
  kind: ClusterRole
  name: cluster-role-bin-developer
  apiGroup: rbac.authorization.k8s.io

The user can access all namespace resource, but I want to limit part of the namespace, i have try

- apiGroups: [""]
  resources: ["namespaces"]
  resourceNames: ["app"]
  verbs: ["list"]

but not work, how can i do this limit ?

Hi,

Thanks for reply.

With -n some-namespace ,i can control multi-namespace level permission, like:

[Role in namespace1]     
[Role in namespace2]    +   [user/serciceaccount]  =   limit kubectl  in namespace1 and namespace2 ,no namespace3

But when I use this in Lens , this not work , because Lens require list namespace permission, and with list namespace permission, user can see all namespace.

  1. you can list all namespace’s name
  2. in namespace:default , you have admin privileges,you can ‚Äėedit delete create ‚Ķ‚Äô
  3. in namespace:rook-ceph ,you have read-only access
  4. in namespace:hc, you have more authority than admin
  5. in other namspace, you can’t get any information
