      Feature Overview

      • As a self-managed OpenShift on Azure administrator, I want to be create and manage OpenShift clusters using Azure managed identities for Azure resources for authentication, in conjunction with Azure AD workload identities to access Azure cloud resources securely.


      • As an administrator, I want to deploy OpenShift 4 and run Operators on Azure using access controls (IAM roles) with temporary, limited privilege credentials.


      • Azure managed identities and workload identities must work for installation with all install methods including IPI and UPI, work with upgrades, and day-to-day cluster lifecycle operations.
      • Support HyperShift and non-HyperShift clusters.
      • Support use of Operators with Azure managed identities.
      • Support in all Azure regions where Azure managed identity and Azure AD workload identity is available. Note: Federated credentials is associated with Azure Managed Identity, and federated credentials is not available in all Azure regions.
      • Azure AD workload identity is currently in preview (as of March-8-2023)


      Note: This is related to OCPBU-8 ARO Managed Identity; however, this feature is focused on self-managed OpenShift on Azure.
