Issue to deploying k6-operator in a private cloud

Hello everyone,

I’m facing an issue while deploying the k6-operator for Kubernetes in a private cloud environment. The k6-operator requires permissions to deploy resources like ClusterRole and ClusterRoleBinding. However, as I don’t have the necessary permissions, the cloud administrators have instructed me to convert ClusterRole and ClusterRoleBinding to Role and RoleBinding.

I attempted to make this conversion, but it didn’t work as expected. Has anyone encountered a similar situation or have a solution to this problem? Any guidance or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I used this documetation : GitHub - grafana/k6-operator: An operator for running distributed k6 tests.

Hi @rafedbenjeddou,
Welcome to the forum :wave: By default, yes, installation of k6-operator requires admin access and it wasn’t a goal to come up with any other scheme. I.e. our view on this is the following:

  • user with admin rights installs k6-operator
  • user with limited rights can run tests or PLZ with k6-operator

This view fits the division of responsibility often used by engineering teams.

There were a couple of people who raised this as a concern and potential improvement over here:

AFAIR, it should be possible to install k6-operator even with limited rights but it would require some tinkering with manifests (and therefore, sufficient understanding of Kubernetes).
