- Does Red Hat support non Red Hat operators running on OpenShift?
- How do I identify the support levels for an operator?
- Which operators are supported by Red Hat?
- Which operators require additional entitlements to be supported by Red Hat?
There are 3 levels of support which can be identified by the
PROVIDER TYPE filter option in Operator Hub:
- Community: These operators are provided by the Open Source community and maintained by the relevant representatives in the operator-framework/community-operators GitHub repository. No integration testing has been done by Red Hat. Not supported by Red Hat
- Certified: These operators are provided by vendors, that have passed the integration testing for OpenShift. Red Hat provides these operators via Operator Hub but support is provided by the vendor.
Red Hat: These operators are provided by Red Hat and supported by Red Hat. These Operators can be divided into 2 types of support.
- Supported by OpenShift: These operators are supported at the same level as your OpenShift cluster. (For example: Kibana, Prometheus)
- Supported by additional entitlements: These operators require additional Red Hat entitlements to receive Red Hat support. (For example: JBoss, 3scale)
Since the release of OCP 4.5, annotations have been made available to assist cluster administrators to understand which operators require a subscription.
Note: Non Red Hat Operators are supported by the vendor or the community that provided the operator. To the extent of a bug (or similar) in OpenShift, Red Hat will assist in the identification and reporting of the bug, including providing workarounds where possible.
There are different levels of support for Operators in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.
