Building a Custom Read-only Global Role with the Rancher Kubernetes API

In 2.8, Rancher added a new field to the GlobalRoles resource (inheritedClusterRoles), which allows users to grant permissions on all downstream clusters. With the addition of this field, it is now possible to create a custom global role that grants user-configurable permissions on all current and future downstream clusters. This post will outline how to create this role using the new Rancher Kubernetes API, which is currently the best-supported method to use this new feature.

Rancher Live: What's the buzz with Cilium?

The Cilium community has had some truly buzzworthy accomplishments (pun intended!) in the past year - from hosting the first ever CiliumCon in Amsterdam to becoming a CNCF graduated project!

Announcing the Rancher Kubernetes API

It is our pleasure to introduce the first officially supported API with Rancher v2.8: the Rancher Kubernetes API, or RK-API for short. Since the introduction of Rancher v2.0, a publicly supported API has been one of our most requested features. The Rancher APIs, which you may recognize as v3 (Norman) or v1 (Steve), have never been officially supported and can only be automated using our Terraform Provider.
