Comment 2 Junqi Zhao 2021-10-18 09:27:06 UTC
tested with the PR, issue is fixed
for example, namespace ns1 has namespace labels
# oc get ns ns1 -o jsonpath="{.metadata.labels"}

seach with "kube_namespace_labels{namespace="ns1"}", we can see the namespace's labels 
# token=`oc sa get-token prometheus-k8s -n openshift-monitoring`
# oc -n openshift-monitoring exec -c prometheus prometheus-k8s-0 -- curl -k -H "Authorization: Bearer $token" 'https://prometheus-k8s.openshift-monitoring.svc:9091/api/v1/query?query=kube_namespace_labels%7Bnamespace%3D%22ns1%22%7D' | jq
