    • Console pods would crash loop if "--user-auth" flag was set to "disabled". Updated the console backend to properly handle this value.

      Description of problem:

          When a cluster is configured for direct OIDC configuration (authentication.config/cluster .spec.type=OIDC), console pods will be in crashloop until an OIDC client is configured for the console.

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

          4.15.0

      How reproducible:

      100% in Hypershift; 100% in TechPreviewNoUpgrade featureset on standalone OpenShift   

      Steps to Reproduce:

          1. Update authentication.config/cluster so that Type=OIDC
          

      Actual results:

          The console operator tries to create a new console rollout, but the pods crashloop. This is because the operator sets the console pods to "disabled". This would normally actually mean a privilege escalation, fortunately the configuration prevents a successful deploy.

      Expected results:

          Console pods are healthy, they show a page which says that no authentication is currently configured.
