Description Wu Siu Wa 2021-03-30 09:31:38 UTC
Description of problem:
We are using kubectl proxy to access openshift clusters. And use Exec to authenticate, instead of token.

When switching project using `oc project` command, it will create a new user without Exec config. Then, the user will fail authentication.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Exec in kubeconfig
2. Run `oc project` to switch project
3. New user&context created without Exec config.

Actual results:
New user&context created without Exec config.

Expected results:
The newly created user should use the same Exec config.

This bug hasn't had any activity in the last 30 days. Maybe the problem got resolved, was a duplicate of something else, or became less pressing for some reason - or maybe it's still relevant but just hasn't been looked at yet. As such, we're marking this bug as "LifecycleStale" and decreasing the severity/priority. If you have further information on the current state of the bug, please update it, otherwise this bug can be closed in about 7 days. The information can be, for example, that the problem still occurs, that you still want the feature, that more information is needed, or that the bug is (for whatever reason) no longer relevant. Additionally, you can add LifecycleFrozen into Keywords if you think this bug should never be marked as stale. Please consult with bug assignee before you do that.

This bug still affecting usage.

Comment 3 Michal Fojtik 2021-04-29 11:06:17 UTC
The LifecycleStale keyword was removed because the needinfo? flag was reset and the bug got commented on recently.
The bug assignee was notified.
