When viewing a Rancher launched Kubernetes cluster, provisioned on nodes hosted in an infrastructure provider, as a user other than the cluster creator, the infrastructure provider name is blank.
- A Rancher v2.x launched Kubernetes cluster, provisioned on nodes hosted in an infrastructure provider
- Access to the Rancher UI as a user different to the cluster creator
Node templates contain the configuration parameters for provisioning nodes in a specific cloud provider.
Node templates are user-scoped and, as a result, where
userA creates a node template in Rancher it is not accessible by
Meanwhile, the Rancher v2.x UI determines the provider for a Rancher launched Kubernetes cluster by mapping
node templates to
The user-scoping of node templates therefore prevents users, other than the creator, from viewing the provider of the cluster.
An enhancement request to enable all users to view the cluster provider is tracked in Rancher GitHub Issue #12038.
