Minimum permissions required for Kubernetes cloud accounts

Last updated: 2022-03-30 10:23:07

    This document describes how to configure the minimum permissions required for Kubernetes cloud accounts in CODING.


    You must activate the CODING DevOps service for your Tencent Cloud account before you can use Coding Continuous Deployment (CD).

    Open Project

    1. Log in to the CODING console and click the team domain name to enter the CODING page.
    2. On the Workspace homepage, click on the left to go to the Continuous Deployment console.

    Feature description

    If you want to release apps in a Kubernetes scenario (using a K8s account), CODING-CD must be able to call Kubernetes APIs. We do not recommend you grant all permissions for the Kubernetes cluster to CODING-CD. Using Kubernetes' Role Based Access Control (RBAC), you can grant CODING-CD the minimum permissions required to release apps. The following describes how to configure mini permissions.


    We recommend you create a Role in the namespace for which you will grant permissions and bind a ServiceAccount to the Role.

    apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
    kind: ClusterRole
    name: coding-cd-role
    - apiGroups: [""]
    resources: ["namespaces", "configmaps", "events", "replicationcontrollers", "serviceaccounts", "pods/logs"]
    verbs: ["get", "list"]
    - apiGroups: [""]
    resources: ["pods", "pods/portforward", "services", "services/proxy", "secrets"]
    verbs: ["*"]
    - apiGroups: ["autoscaling"]
    resources: ["horizontalpodautoscalers"]
    verbs: ["list", "get"]
    - apiGroups: ["apps"]
    resources: ["controllerrevisions", "statefulsets"]
    verbs: ["list"]
    - apiGroups: ["extensions", "app", "apps"]
    resources: ["deployments", "replicasets", "ingresses", "daemonsets"]
    verbs: ["*"]

    Service Account

    Next, create a Service Account for CODING-CD. The Continuous Deployment console uses the Service Account to interact with the Kubernetes cluster. You can use the following manifest to create a Service Account.

    apiVersion: v1
    kind: ServiceAccount
    name: coding-cd-service-account
    namespace: default

    Role Binding

    Finally, create a RoleBinding to bind the above coding-cd-role to coding-cd-service-account.

    apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
    kind: RoleBinding
    name: coding-cd-role-
    namespace: webapp
    apiGroup: rbac.authorization.k8s.io
    kind: Role
    name: coding-cd-role
    - namespace: default
    kind: ServiceAccount
    name: coding-cd-service-account
