Chapter 8. Reference

8.1. Custom Resource configuration reference

A Custom Resource Definition (CRD) is a schema of configuration items for a custom OpenShift object deployed with an Operator. By deploying a corresponding Custom Resource (CR) instance, you specify values for configuration items shown in the CRD.

The following sub-sections detail the configuration items that you can set in Custom Resource instances based on the main broker CRD.

8.1.1. Broker Custom Resource configuration reference

A CR instance based on the main broker CRD enables you to configure brokers for deployment in an OpenShift project. The following table describes the items that you can configure in the CR instance.

Important

Configuration items marked with an asterisk (*) are required in any corresponding Custom Resource (CR) that you deploy. If you do not explicitly specify a value for a non-required item, the configuration uses the default value.

EntrySub-entryDescription and usage

adminUser*

 

Administrator user name required for connecting to the broker and management console.

If you do not specify a value, the value is automatically generated and stored in a secret. The default secret name has a format of <custom_resource_name>-credentials-secret. For example, my-broker-deployment-credentials-secret.

Type: string

Example: my-user

Default value: Automatically-generated, random value

adminPassword*

 

Administrator password required for connecting to the broker and management console.

If you do not specify a value, the value is automatically generated and stored in a secret. The default secret name has a format of <custom_resource_name>-credentials-secret. For example, my-broker-deployment-credentials-secret.

Type: string

Example: my-password

Default value: Automatically-generated, random value

deploymentPlan*

 

Broker deployment configuration

 

image*

Full path of the broker container image used for each broker in the deployment.

You do not need to explicitly specify a value for image in your CR. The default value of placeholder indicates that the Operator has not yet determined the appropriate image to use.

To learn how the Operator chooses a broker container image to use, see Section 2.4, “How the Operator chooses container images”.

Type: string

Example: registry.redhat.io/amq7/amq-broker-rhel8@sha256:b4a7a1b43d1b9517f3c567fbcd7a61d7e63c5b2b950d0fb9b521942347e47368

Default value: placeholder

 

size*

Number of broker Pods to create in the deployment.

If you specify a value of 2 or greater, your broker deployment is clustered by default. The cluster user name and password are automatically generated and stored in the same secret as adminUser and adminPassword, by default.

Type: int

Example: 1

Default value: 2

 

requireLogin

Specify whether login credentials are required to connect to the broker.

Type: Boolean

Example: false

Default value: true

Type: Boolean

Example: false

Default value: true

 

initImage

Init Container image used to configure the broker.

You do not need to explicitly specify a value for initImage in your CR, unless you want to provide a custom image.

To learn how the Operator chooses a built-in Init Container image to use, see Section 2.4, “How the Operator chooses container images”.

To learn how to specify a custom Init Container image, see Section 4.6, “Specifying a custom Init Container image”.

Type: string

Example: registry.redhat.io/amq7/amq-broker-init-rhel8@sha256:813f911d5c554fd3a9abe458ffe9d22466fd2a7c385d8f201ef1c02a36634ea7

Specify the most secure cipher suite(s) supported by your client application. If you use a comma-separated list to specify a set of cipher suites that is common to both the broker and the client, or you do not specify any cipher suites, the broker and client mutually negotiate a cipher suite to use. If you do not know which cipher suites to specify, it is recommended that you first establish a broker-client connection with your client running in debug mode, to verify the cipher suites that are common to both the broker and the client. Then, configure enabledCipherSuites on the broker.

  • AMQ_CLUSTER_USER
  • AMQ_CLUSTER_PASSWORD

8.3. Logging

In addition to viewing the OpenShift logs, you can troubleshoot a running AMQ Broker on OpenShift Container Platform image by viewing the AMQ logs that are output to the container’s console.

Procedure

  • At the command line, run the following command:
$ oc logs -f <pass:quotes[<pod-name>]> <pass:quotes[<container-name>]>
