Description Jack Ottofaro 2021-06-23 21:18:20 UTC
Created attachment 1793632 [details]
Spreadsheet containing leaked resources

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1975533 +++

This "stale cruft" is created as a result of the following scenario. Release A had manifest M that lead the CVO to reconcile resource R. But then the component maintainers decided they didn't need R any longer, so they dropped manifest M in release B. The new CVO will no longer reconcile R, but clusters updating from A to B will still have resource R in-cluster, as an unmaintained orphan.

Now that https://issues.redhat.com/browse/OTA-222 has been implemented teams can go back through and create deletion manifests for these leaked resources.

The attachment delete-candidates.csv contains a list of leaked resources as compared to a freshly installed 4.9 cluster. Use this list to find your component's resources and use the manifest delete annotation (https://github.com/openshift/cluster-version-operator/pull/438) to remove them.

Note also that in the case of a cluster-scoped resource it may not need to be removed but simply be modified to remove namespace.

Service catalog is removed from OCP since 4.5. I think this bug could be closed.

CVO now implemented the way to remove the no longer used resources to avoid resources leaking after cluster upgrades. Please refer to https://github.com/openshift/cluster-version-operator/blob/master/docs/dev/object-deletion.md. To make it worked in service catalog, you need to reinsert those removed yaml but add the delete annotaion.

Comment 4 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2022-02-17 01:01:10 UTC
To clean up the servicecatalog remover jobs you can do the following:

# remove the clusterrolebindings
oc delete clusterrolebinding system:openshift:operator:openshift-service-catalog-apiserver-remover
oc delete clusterrolebinding system:openshift:operator:openshift-service-catalog-controller-manager-remover

# remove the service accounts
oc delete serviceaccount openshift-service-catalog-apiserver-remover -n openshift-service-catalog-removed
oc delete serviceaccount openshift-service-catalog-controller-manager-remover -n openshift-service-catalog-removed

# remove the namespace
oc delete namespace openshift-service-catalog-removed

The CVO feature to cleanup these resources was done after servicecatalog was removed from the product. We are no longer maintaining these operators or jobs. 

I'm closing this bug as wontfix since there is a work around.
