Description Samuel Padgett 2020-07-16 16:26:03 UTC
Currently we show cluster upgrades to anyone who can get the ClusterVersion resource. We don't check if the user is able to actually able to edit the ClusterVersion to start an upgrade. We should avoid showing the notification to users who can't act on it.

For users who are unable to patch the ClusterVersion resource, we should

1. Hide the upgrade notification in the notification drawer, home -> status page, and about dialog
2. Remove the edit channel and start upgrade buttons from the cluster settings page

The user has only cluster-reader RBAC and visit Cluster Settings page and see the clusterversion, but could not see the Edit button. This was Verified as comment 4.

The user has no cluster-reader RBAC could not see the menus and will get Restricted Access error message if visit directly by url. Attached the screenshot for compare.

The user has RBAC of ClusterVersion edit permission could see the Edit button on Cluster Versions page. Also attached the screenshot for compare.
