Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Set an Ingress Controller's Spec.DefaultCertificate field to reference a secret that does not exist. Consequence: The operator generated default certificate for that ingress controller is deleted. Fix: The ingress operator now verifies that an Ingress Controller's Spec.DefaultCertificate value exists, should it be specified, before deleting the operator generated default certificate. Result: The operator generated default certificate for a given ingress controller is not forcibly deleted when an Ingress Controller's Spec.DefaultCertificate is updated to point to a secret that does not exist.

Description Standa Laznicka 2020-10-12 13:36:55 UTC
Description of problem:
Configuring the `defaultCertificate` to refer to a non-existent resource leads to router-certs secret being wiped of data, which breaks the authn operator.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. oc edit ingresscontroller -n openshift-ingress-operator default
2. set defaultCertificate.name to something you're sure does not exist
3. watch oc get co ingress

Actual results:
ingress operator never goes degraded

Expected results:
ingress operator reports degraded as it's incapable to find its input resource

Comment 1 Stephen Greene 2020-10-23 14:08:17 UTC
Adding upcoming sprint.

Comment 2 Stephen Greene 2020-11-13 17:49:07 UTC
I looked through the ingress controller status code and have a better idea of what a fix for this looks like. Adding upcoming sprint.

Comment 4 Stephen Greene 2020-12-07 19:44:26 UTC
Note that as is the ingress controller would go degraded after a period of 60 minutes in this scenario.


Creating a PR to address the main problem of the router-certs secret being deleted when the user specified Spec.DefaultCertificate in the default ingress controller does not exist.

Tested in "4.7.0-0.ci.test-2020-12-23-033722-ci-ln-2lsq5dt" release. With this payload, in reference to C#4, it is now noted that the default certificates continues to remain available when the router is incorrectly configured with the wrong unavailable certificate secret:
