      Before this update, an error in the gateway component enforcing tenancy for reading logs limited access to logs with a Kubernetes namespace causing "audit" and some "infrastructure" logs to be unreadable. With this update, the proxy correctly detects users with admin access and allows access to logs without a namespace for them.

    • Logging (LogExp) - Sprint 218

      Description of problem:

      Audit and journald logs cannot be viewed from LokiStack when logs are forwarded with Vector as collector. 

       

      Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

      Server Version: 4.10.6

      Kubernetes Version: v1.23.5+b0357ed

      Clusterlogging.v5.5.0

      elasticsearch-operator.v5.5.0

      Loki-operator.v0.0.1

       

      How reproducible:

      Always

       

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1 Create CatalogSource with upstream index quay.io/logging/logging-index:latest

      2 Install Cluster Logging, Elasticsearch and LokiStack operators.

      git clone git@gitlab.cee.redhat.com:aosqe/aosqe-tools.git
      oc create -f aosqe-tools/logging/log_template/vector/logging_with_loki_install.yaml

      3 Create S3 secret and bucket for LokiStack.

      LOKI_BUCKET_NAME=$(whoami)-aosqe-logging-loki
      NAMESPACE="openshift-logging"
      SECRETNAME="s3-secret"
      REGION="us-east-2"
      ENDPOINT="https://s3.${REGION}.amazonaws.com"
      ACCESS_KEY_ID=$(oc get secret aws-creds -n kube-system -o json | jq -r '.data.aws_access_key_id'|base64 -d)
      SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=$(oc get secret  aws-creds -n kube-system -o json |jq -r '.data.aws_secret_access_key'|base64 -d)
      
      
      Create S3 bucket:
      aws s3api create-bucket --bucket $LOKI_BUCKET_NAME --region $REGION --create-bucket-configuration LocationConstraint=$REGION
      
      Create S3 secret:
      oc -n "${NAMESPACE}" create secret generic ${SECRETNAME} \
        --from-literal=endpoint="${ENDPOINT}" \
        --from-literal=region="${REGION}" \
        --from-literal=bucketnames="${LOKI_BUCKET_NAME}" \
        --from-literal=access_key_id="${ACCESS_KEY_ID}" \
        --from-literal=access_key_secret="${SECRET_ACCESS_KEY}"

      4 Deploy LokiStack in the openshift-logging namesapce. and check the LokiStack status when the stack is deployed. 

      oc create -f aosqe-tools/logging/log_template/vector/lokistack_aws_simple.yaml
      
      oc get lokistacks.loki.grafana.com lokistack-instance -o yaml 

      5 Create the ClusterRole and ClusterRoleBinding which will allow the cluster to authenticate the user submitting the logs.

      oc create -f aosqe-tools/logging/log_template/vector/loki_role_bindings.yaml 

      6 Create a ClusterLogForwarder CR to forward logs to LokiStack.

      oc create -f aosqe-tools/logging/log_template/vector/clf_lokistack_gateway_http.yaml 

      7 Create a Cluster Logging instance.

      oc create -f aosqe-tools/logging/log_template/vector/cli_collector_only.yaml 

      8 Deploy the log generator app.

      oc new-project test
      oc new-app aosqe-tools/logging/log_gen/container_json_log_template.json 

      9 Extract and check the Vector config.

      oc extract secret/collector-config --confirm 

      10 Check logs in Lokistack

      bearer_token=$(oc whoami -t)
      
      lokistack_route=$(oc get route lokistack-instance -n openshift-logging -o json |jq '.spec.host' -r)
      
      logcli -o raw --bearer-token="${bearer_token}" --addr="http://${lokistack_route}/api/logs/v1/infrastructure" labels
      
      Check log gen app logs in test namespace:
      logcli -o raw --bearer-token="${bearer_token}" --addr="http://${lokistack_route}/api/logs/v1/application" query '{kubernetes_namespace_name="test"}'
      
      Check logs by log type:
      logcli -o raw --bearer-token="${bearer_token}" --addr="http://${lokistack_route}/api/logs/v1/infrastructure" query '{log_type="infrastructure"}'
      
      logcli -o raw --bearer-token="${bearer_token}" --addr="http://${lokistack_route}/api/logs/v1/application" query '{log_type="application"}'
      
      logcli -o raw --bearer-token="${bearer_token}" --addr="http://${lokistack_route}/api/logs/v1/audit" query '{log_type="audit"}' 

      Check that the audit and journald  logs queries returns empty result while the other log types have the correct log data.

      $ logcli -o raw --bearer-token="${bearer_token}" --addr="http://${lokistack_route}/api/logs/v1/audit" query '{log_type="audit"}'
