[rfe] need nodeport docs
Last modified: 2017-07-11 09:50:20 EDT
This issue is to address an outstanding GitHub issue:
In 3.5: https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/3.5/architecture/core_concepts/pods_and_services.html#service-nodeport
Who can request a nodeport on a service?
It mentions that "Setting a nodePort is a privileged operation." but doesn't specify what type of privilege. Is this an SCC-type privilege? Is this a cluster-admin privilege? It's unclear.
What happens if someone requests a port for a service that is already requested/in-use?
And so on and so forth.
This is related, in a larger sense, to the whole service guide. The guide does a good job of explaining the levers to pull and what they do, but we are missing a "bigger picture" description of when to use which and what and why, and what the drawbacks are to things.
