Service Account for EventSources¶
Service Account can be specified in the EventSource object with
spec.template.serviceAccountName, however it is not needed for all the
EventSource types except
resource. For a
resource EventSource, you need to
specify a Service Accout and give it
watch permissions for the
resource being watched.
For example, if you want to watch actions on
Deployment objects, you need to:
Create a Service Account.
kubectl -n your-namespace create sa my-sa
Grant RBAC privileges to it.
kubectl -n your-namespace create role deployments-watcher --verb=list,watch --resource=deployments.apps kubectl -n your-namespace create rolebinding deployments-watcher-role-binding --role=deployments-watcher --serviceaccount=your-namespace:my-sa
or (if you want to watch cluster scope)
kubectl create clusterrole deployments-watcher --verb=list,watch --resource=deployments.apps kubectl create clusterrolebinding deployments-watcher-clusterrole-binding --clusterrole=deployments-watcher --serviceaccount=your-namespace:my-sa
Service Account for Sensors¶
Service Account also can be specified in a Sensor object via
spec.template.serviceAccountName, this is only needed when
k8s trigger or
argoWorkflow trigger is defined in the Sensor object.
The sensor examples provided by us use
operate-workflow-sa service account to
execute the triggers, but it has more permissions than needed, and you may want
to limit those privileges based on your use-case. It's always a good practice to
create a service account with minimum privileges to execute it.
Argo Workflow Trigger¶
submita workflow through
argoWorkflowtrigger, make sure to grant the Service Account
suspenda workflow through
argoWorkflowtrigger, the service account needs
K8s Resource Trigger¶
To trigger a K8s resource including
trigger, make sure to grant
create permission to that resource.
AWS Lambda, HTTP, Slack, NATS, Kafka, and OpenWhisk Triggers¶
For these triggers, you don't need to specify a Service Account to the Sensor.
Service Account for Trigged Workflows (or other K8s resources)¶
When the Sensor is used to trigger a Workflow, you might need to configure the
Service Account used in the Workflow spec (NOT
spec.template.serviceAccountName) following Argo Workflow
If it is used to trigger other K8s resources (i.e. a Deployment), make sure to follow least privilege principle.
