The Kubernetes recipes#

Getting Started with Kubernetes#

The Kubernetes deployment of the Gluu Server, also called Cloud Native (CN) Edition, requires some special considerations compared to other deployments. This page details the installation and initial configuration of a CN deployment. More advanced configuration details are available on the appropriate pages throughout the Gluu documentation. For convenience, links to those documents follow:

System Requirements for cloud deployments#

Note

For local deployments like minikube and microk8s or cloud installations for demoing Gluu may set the resources to the minimum and hence7 can have 8GB RAM, 4 CPU, and 50GB disk in total to run all services.

Please calculate the minimum required resources as per services deployed. The following table contains default recommended resources to start with. Depending on the use of each service the resources may be increased or decreased.

Service CPU Unit RAM Disk Space Processor Type Required

  1. Configure cloud or local kubernetes cluster:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) - EKS#

Setup Cluster#

  • Follow this guide to install a cluster with worker nodes. Please make sure that you have all the IAM policies for the AWS user that will be creating the cluster and volumes.

Requirements#

  • The above guide should also walk you through installing kubectl , aws-iam-authenticator and aws cli on the VM you will be managing your cluster and nodes from. Check to make sure.

    aws-iam-authenticator help
    aws-cli
    kubectl version
    
  • Optional[alpha]: If using Istio please install it prior to installing Gluu. You may choose to use any installation method Istio supports. If you have insalled istio ingress , a loadbalancer will have been created. Please save the address of loadblancer for use later during installation.

Note

Default AWS deployment will install a classic load balancer with an IP that is not static. Don't worry about the IP changing. All pods will be updated automatically with our script when a change in the IP of the load balancer occurs. However, when deploying in production, DO NOT use our script. Instead, assign a CNAME record for the LoadBalancer DNS name, or use Amazon Route 53 to create a hosted zone. More details in this AWS guide.

GCE (Google Cloud Engine) - GKE#

Setup Cluster#

  1. Install gcloud

  2. Install kubectl using gcloud components install kubectl command

  3. Create cluster using a command such as the following example:

    gcloud container clusters create exploringgluu --num-nodes 2 --machine-type e2-highcpu-8 --zone us-west1-a
    

    where CLUSTER_NAME is the name you choose for the cluster and ZONE_NAME is the name of zone where the cluster resources live in.

  4. Configure kubectl to use the cluster:

    gcloud container clusters get-credentials CLUSTER_NAME --zone ZONE_NAME
    

    where CLUSTER_NAME is the name you choose for the cluster and ZONE_NAME is the name of zone where the cluster resources live in.

    Afterwards run kubectl cluster-info to check whether kubectl is ready to interact with the cluster.

  5. If a connection is not made to google consul using google account the call to the api will fail. Either connect to google consul using an associated google account and run any kubectl command like kubectl get pod or create a service account using a json key file.

  6. Optional[alpha]: If using Istio please install it prior to installing Gluu. You may choose to use any installation method Istio supports. If you have insalled istio ingress , a loadbalancer will have been created. Please save the ip of loadblancer for use later during installation.

DigitalOcean Kubernetes (DOKS)#

Setup Cluster#

  • Follow this guide to create digital ocean kubernetes service cluster and connect to it.

  • Optional[alpha]: If using Istio please install it prior to installing Gluu. You may choose to use any installation method Istio supports. If you have insalled istio ingress , a loadbalancer will have been created. Please save the ip of loadblancer for use later during installation.

Azure - AKS#

Warning

Pending

Requirements#

  • Follow this guide to install Azure CLI on the VM that will be managing the cluster and nodes. Check to make sure.

  • Follow this section to create the resource group for the AKS setup.

  • Follow this section to create the AKS cluster

  • Follow this section to connect to the AKS cluster

  • Optional[alpha]: If using Istio please install it prior to installing Gluu. You may choose to use any installation method Istio supports. If you have insalled istio ingress , a loadbalancer will have been created. Please save the ip of loadblancer for use later during installation.

Minikube#

Requirements#

  1. Install minikube.

  2. Install kubectl.

  3. Create cluster:

    minikube start
    
  4. Configure kubectl to use the cluster:

    kubectl config use-context minikube
    
  5. Enable ingress on minikube

    minikube addons enable ingress
    
  6. Optional[alpha]: If using Istio please install it prior to installing Gluu. You may choose to use any installation method Istio supports.Please note that at the moment Istio ingress is not supported with Minikube.

MicroK8s#

Requirements#

  1. Install MicroK8s

  2. Make sure all ports are open for microk8s

  3. Enable helm3, storage, ingress and dns.

    sudo microk8s.enable helm3 storage ingress dns
    
  4. Optional[alpha]: If using Istio please enable it. Please note that at the moment Istio ingress is not supported with Microk8s.

    sudo microk8s.enable istio
    
  1. Install using one of the following :

Install Gluu using pygluu-kubernetes#

  1. Download pygluu-kubernetes.pyz. This package can be built manually.

  2. Optional: If using couchbase as the persistence backend. Download the couchbase kubernetes operator package for linux and place it in the same directory as pygluu-kubernetes.pyz

  3. Run :

    ./pygluu-kubernetes.pyz install
    

Note

Prompts will ask for the rest of the information needed. You may generate the manifests (yaml files) and continue to deployment or just generate the manifests (yaml files) during the execution of pygluu-kubernetes.pyz. pygluu-kubernetes.pyz will output a file called settings.json holding all the parameters. More information about this file and the vars it holds is below but please don't manually create this file as the script can generate it using pygluu-kubernetes.pyz generate-settings.

Uninstall#

  1. Run :

    ./pygluu-kubernetes.pyz uninstall
    

Install Gluu using Helm#

Prerequisites#

  • Kubernetes 1.x
  • Persistent volume provisioner support in the underlying infrastructure
  • Install Helm3

Quickstart#

  1. Download pygluu-kubernetes.pyz. This package can be built manually.

  2. Optional: If using couchbase as the persistence backend. Download the couchbase kubernetes operator package for linux and place it in the same directory as pygluu-kubernetes.pyz

  3. Run :

./pygluu-kubernetes.pyz helm-install

Installing Gluu using Helm manually#

  1. Optional if not using istio ingress: Install nginx-ingress Helm Chart.
helm repo add ingress-nginx https://kubernetes.github.io/ingress-nginx
helm repo add stable https://charts.helm.sh/stable
helm repo update
helm install <nginx-release-name> ingress-nginx/ingress-nginx --namespace=<nginx-namespace>
    • If the FQDN for gluu i.e demoexample.gluu.org is registered and globally resolvable, forward it to the loadbalancers address created in the previous step by nginx-ingress. A record can be added on most cloud providers to forward the domain to the loadbalancer. Forexample, on AWS assign a CNAME record for the LoadBalancer DNS name, or use Amazon Route 53 to create a hosted zone. More details in this AWS guide. Another example on GCE.

    • If the FQDN is not registered acquire the loadbalancers ip if on GCE, or Azure using kubectl get svc <release-name>-nginx-ingress-controller --output jsonpath='{.status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip}' and if on AWS get the loadbalancers addresss using kubectl -n ingress-nginx get svc ingress-nginx \--output jsonpath='{.status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname}'.

    • If deploying on the cloud make sure to take a look at the helm cloud specific notes before continuing.

    • EKS

    • GKE

    • If deploying locally make sure to take a look at the helm specific notes bellow before continuing.

    • Minikube

    • MicroK8s
  1. Optional: If using couchbase as the persistence backend.

Instructions on how to install different services#

Enabling the following services automatically install the corresponding associated chart. To enable/disable them set true or false in the persistence configs as shown below.

config:
  configmap:
    # Auto install other services. If enabled the respective service chart will be installed
    gluuPassportEnabled: false
    gluuCasaEnabled: false
    gluuRadiusEnabled: false
    gluuSamlEnabled: false

Casa#

  • Casa is dependant on oxd-server. To install it oxd-server must be enabled.

Other optional services#

Other optional services like key-rotation, cr-rotation, and radius are enabled by setting their corresponding values to true under the global block.

For example, to enable cr-rotate set

global:
  cr-rotate:
    enabled: true

Install Gluu using the gui installer#

Warning

The GUI installer is currently alpha. Please report any bugs found by opening an issue.

  1. Create the GUI installer job

17 Azure Persistent Disk dynamically provisioned
18 Azure Persistent Disk statically provisioned
21 Digital Ocean volumes on host
22 Digital Ocean Persistent Disk dynamically provisioned
23 Digital Ocean Persistent Disk statically provisioned

Use Couchbase solely as the persistence layer#

Requirements#

  • If you are installing on microk8s or minikube please ignore the below notes as a low resource couchbase-cluster.yaml will be applied automatically, however the VM being used must at least have 8GB RAM and 2 cpu available .

  • An m5.xlarge EKS cluster with 3 nodes at the minimum or n2-standard-4 GKE cluster with 3 nodes. We advice contacting Gluu regarding production setups.

  • Install couchbase kubernetes and place the tar.gz file inside the same directory as the pygluu-kubernetes.pyz.

  • A modified couchbase/couchbase-cluster.yaml will be generated but in production it is likely that this file will be modified.

  • To override the couchbase-cluster.yaml place the file inside /couchbase folder after running ./pygluu-kubernetes.pyz. More information on the properties couchbase-cluster.yaml.

Note

Please note the couchbase/couchbase-cluster.yaml file must include at least three defined spec.servers with the labels couchbase_services: index, couchbase_services: data and couchbase_services: analytics

If you wish to get started fast just change the values of spec.servers.name and spec.servers.serverGroups inside couchbase/couchbase-cluster.yaml to the zones of your EKS nodes and continue.

  • Run ./pygluu-kubernetes.pyz install-couchbase and follow the prompts to install couchbase solely with Gluu.

Use remote Couchbase as the persistence layer#

  • Install couchbase

  • Obtain the Public DNS or FQDN of the couchbase node.

  • Head to the FQDN of the couchbase node to setup your couchbase cluster. When setting up please use the FQDN as the hostname of the new cluster.

  • Couchbase URL base , user, and password will be needed for installation when running pygluu-kubernetes.pyz

How to expand EBS volumes#

  1. Make sure the StorageClass used in your deployment has the allowVolumeExpansion set to true. If you have used our EBS volume deployment strategy then you will find that this property has already been set for you.

  2. Edit your persistent volume claim using kubectl edit pvc <claim-name> -n <namespace> and increase the value found for storage: to the value needed. Make sure the volumes expand by checking the kubectl get pvc <claim-name> -n <namespace>.

  3. Restart the associated services

Scaling pods#

Note

When using Mircok8s substitute kubectl with microk8s.kubectl in the below commands.

To scale pods, run the following command:

kubectl scale --replicas=<number> <resource> <name>

In this case, <resource> could be Deployment or Statefulset and <name> is the resource name.

Examples:

  • Scaling oxAuth:

    kubectl scale --replicas=2 deployment oxauth
    
  • Scaling oxTrust:

    kubectl scale --replicas=2 statefulset oxtrust
    

Working with Jackrabbit#

Services Folder / File Jackrabbit Repository Method
oxAuth /opt/gluu/jetty/oxauth/custom /repository/default/opt/gluu/jetty/oxauth/custom PULL from Jackrabbit
oxTrust /opt/gluu/jetty/identity/custom /repository/default/opt/gluu/jetty/identity/custom PULL from Jackrabbit
Casa /opt/gluu/jetty/casa /repository/default/opt/gluu/jetty/casa PULL from Jackrabbit

The above means that Jackrabbit will maintain the source folder on all replicas of a service. If one pushed a custom file to /opt/gluu/jetty/oxauth/custom at one replica all other replicas would have this file.

oxTrust --> Jackrabbit --> oxShibboleth#

Services Folder / File Jackrabbit Repository Method
oxTrust /opt/shibboleth-idp /repository/default/opt/shibboleth-idp PUSH to Jackrabbit
oxShibboleth /opt/shibboleth-idp /repository/default/opt/shibboleth-idp PULL from Jackrabbit

oxAuth --> Jackrabbit --> Casa#

Services Folder / File Jackrabbit Repository Method
oxAuth /etc/certs/otp_configuration.json /repository/etc/certs/otp_configuration.json PUSH to Jackrabbit
oxAuth /etc/certs/super_gluu_creds.json /repository/default/etc/certs/super_gluu_creds.json PUSH to Jackrabbit
Casa /etc/certs/otp_configuration.json /repository/etc/certs/otp_configuration.json PULL from Jackrabbit
Casa /etc/certs/super_gluu_creds.json /repository/default/etc/certs/super_gluu_creds.json PULL from Jackrabbit

Note

You can use any client to connect to Jackrabbit. We assume Gluu is installed in gluu namespace

  1. Port forward Jackrabbit at localhost on port 8080

        kubectl port-forward jackrabbit-0 --namespace gluu 8080:8080
    
  2. Optional: If your managing VM is in the cloud you must forward the connection to the mac, linux or windows computer you are working from.

        ssh -i <key.pem> -L 8080:localhost:8080 user-of-managing-vm@ip-of-managing-vm
    
  3. Use any filemanager to connect to Jackrabbit. Here are some examples:

    Open file manager which maybe Nautilus and find Connect to Server place the address which should be http://localhost:8080. By default the username and password are admin if not changed in etc/gluu/conf/jca_password.

    Open My PC and inside the address that might read your C drive place the address which should be http://localhost:8080. By default the username and password are admin if not changed in etc/gluu/conf/jca_password.

    Open Finder , Go then Connect to Server and place the address which should be http://localhost:8080. By default the username and password are admin if not changed in etc/gluu/conf/jca_password.

Warning

Used for quick testing with Jackrabbit and should be avoided.

  1. Copy files to Jackrabbit container at /opt/webdav

  2. Run python3 /app/scripts/jca_sync.py .

Build pygluu-kubernetes installer#

Overview#

pygluu-kubernetes.pyz is periodically released and does not need to be built manually. However, the process of building the installer package is listed below.

Build pygluu-kubernetes.pyz manually#

Prerequisites#

  1. Python 3.6+.
  2. Python pip3 package.

Installation#

Standard Python package#

  1. Create virtual environment and activate:

    python3 -m venv .venv
    source .venv/bin/activate
    
  2. Install the package:

    make install
    

    This command will install executable called pygluu-kubernetes available in virtual environment PATH.
