Doc Text:
Cause: Creating project using project template does not use the substituted project name, but the namespace name. Consequence: Not able to use parametrized name as a project name as the generated suffix or prefix might be dropped. Fix: Use the substituted project name when creating the namespace. Result:

Description Kenjiro Nakayama 2017-05-23 01:06:07 UTC
Description of problem:
- We would like to create prefix namespace with requester name.
- The background of this request is that OCP's project/namespace has to be unique. But there are no good way to create the project uniquely atm. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- OCP 3.4

How reproducible:
- 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Modify template like https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/3.4/admin_guide/managing_projects.html#modifying-the-template-for-new-projects

Actual results:
- Failed to create the project.

  ]$ oc new-project aaa
  Error from server: Internal error occurred: namespaces "aaa" not found

Expected results:
- Create the project with requester name suffix.

Additional info:
- According to Jordan's internal mail, it was possible in previous version(?)

(However, as far as I tested on OCP 3.4, it doesn't work).

Comment 1 Michal Fojtik 2017-05-25 10:41:22 UTC
I think there are couple problems here:

1) Using the ${PROJECT_REQUESTING_USER} only for the project name won't work unless you do the same everywhere where ${PROJECT_NAME} parameter is used in the template (iow. RoleBindings, etc.)

2) https://github.com/openshift/origin/pull/14344 this has to be fixed

3) there is a bug in `new-project` that prevents the newly created project to be set.

Bug 1454535 - Use created project name over namespace name in project template

Comment 8 ge liu 2017-06-05 07:54:19 UTC
Verified in OCP env:

openshift v3.6.94
kubernetes v1.6.1+5115d708d7
etcd 3.1.0

1. login OCP cluster, and working as system:admin user
2. #oadm create-bootstrap-project-template -o yaml > template.yaml
3. Edit template.yaml:

     replace ALL  "name: ${PROJECT_NAME}" to "name: ${PROJECT_NAME}-lg", pay attention all items, but not project metadate name only.

4. modify master-config.yaml: projectRequestTemplate: "default/project-request"  and restart master service

5. # oc new-project ccc --description=lala1
6. # oc get project
ccc-lg                            Active

You can add applications to this project with the 'new-app' command. For example, try:

    oc new-app centos/ruby-22-centos7~https://github.com/openshift/ruby-ex.git

to build a new example application in Ruby.
