* Before this update, the web terminal icon was available in the web console's banner head only if you installed the Web Terminal Operator in the `openShift-operators` namespace. With this update, the terminal icon is available regardless of the namespace where you install the Web Terminal Operator. (link:https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2006329[2006329])

Description Josh Pinkney 2021-09-21 13:50:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently if you install the web terminal operator on an OpenShift cluster the terminal icon on the banner head will only appear if the web terminal operator is installed in the OpenShift-Operators namespace. This presents a problem because on OSD, in order to make the operator configurable by dedicated admins you want to have the operator in a non OpenShift- namespace. The console should be allowing the web terminal operator to be installed in any namespace and have the terminal in the browser working.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new non OpenShift- project:
oc new-project sample

2.Add in the following subscription:
apiVersion: operators.coreos.com/v1alpha1
kind: Subscription
  name: web-terminal
  namespace: sample
  channel: fast
  installPlanApproval: Automatic
  name: web-terminal
  source: redhat-operators
  sourceNamespace: openshift-marketplace
  startingCSV: web-terminal.v1.3.0
3. Observe that the terminal icon does not appear on the banner head

Actual results:
The terminal button never appears on the banner head when installed in a different namespace

Expected results:
You can see the terminal button on the banner head regardless of what namespace Web Terminal Operator is installed
