Permission Manager is an application developed by SIGHUP that enables a super-easy and user-friendly RBAC management for Kubernetes. If you are looking for a simple and intuitive way of managing your users within a Kubernetes cluster, this is the right place.
With Permission Manager, you can create users, assign namespaces/permissions, and distribute Kubeconfig YAML files via a nice&easy web UI.

How it works?
The application allows us to define and select permission standard templates (those defining who can do what, within a namespace or globally) and associate them with all the users you might want to create.

Do we plan to use CRD’s and custom labels? Sure, it’s in the product roadmap.
What is a template?
A template is a ClusterRole with a prefix
Why a template is not a CRD?
When we started the development of this project, a template was one-to-one to a

How to add a new template?
Create a clusterrole starting with
template-namespaced-resources___ and apply it.
operation default templates can be created by applying the manifest located at k8s/k8s-seeds/seed.yml
kubectl apply -f k8s/k8s-seeds
What is a user?
A user is a custom resource of kind
