Implicit RBAC grants in OpenShift Container Platform

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When a user creates a StatefulSet with a volumeClaimTemplates, he can provision a PersistentVolumeClaim even if the user does not have the permission to create a PersistentVolumeClaim object. Why is this?
  • Are there implicit grants for RBAC permissions for certain objects?
  • As a user, oc auth can-i create persistentvolumeclaims returns "no", but the user can still create PersistentVolumeClaims via a StatefulSet - why is this?
