Description Ben Luddy 2021-01-28 23:29:25 UTC
Description of problem:

If no available operators are found that match the spec of a Subscription, the constraints listed in the ResolutionFailed event are misleading.

For example:

> constraints not satisfiable: ibm-appconnect is mandatory, ibm-appconnect has a dependency without any candidates to satisfy it


> The namespace contains a subscription for package "ibm-appconnect" and no operators were found in the catalog that match the criteria in the subscription's spec.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.6+

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a subscription for a package that doesn't exist.
2. Look for the ResolutionFailed event in the default namespace:
$ kubectl get event --sort-by=.metadata.creationTimestamp | grep ResolutionFailed | tail -1

Actual results: see above.

Expected results, approximately:

X is mandatory -> a subscription to package X exists in the namespace
X has a dependency without any candidates to satisfy it -> no operators were found matching the criteria of the subscription

Marking for upcoming sprint and removing from 4.7.0 release list. This will be addressed in a future sprint.
