Description Yaacov Zamir 2020-06-04 08:13:47 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1843780 +++

Description of problem:
When logged in as non-admin user in a namespace created by this non-admin user, 
created Virtual Machines are not displayed in the Virtualization.
Browser console reads lots of 403 errors.

After discussion with Yaacov, the issue is probably either:
- if virtualmachineimports are not allowed for non-admin user, UI should ignore the missing data  => UI bug

- if virtualmachineimports should be allowed for non-admin user, UI should display an error instead of failing silently => UI bug + CNV permissions bug

oc get virtualmachineimports
No resources found.
Error from server (Forbidden): virtualmachineimports.v2v.kubevirt.io is forbidden: User "test" cannot list resource "virtualmachineimports" in API group "v2v.kubevirt.io" in the namespace "test"
when in none-admin we cant get virtualmachineimports

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in as non-admin user
2. create a VM
3. navigate to Virtualization -> Virtual Machines

Actual results:

Expected results:

@Filip, hi

In this case vmImports is not null, and also not loaded ( it has an error )
we have a line that should handle cases where user can not get virtualmachineimports [1] should it also handle this case ?

const isVMImportLoaded = !vmImports || vmImports.loaded; // go in when CRD missing

targeting to 4.6 , since this is high profile, we may want to backport to 4.5

@Tomas FYI
