How to Access the User Authentication Service

Most user administration features are performed by admins through the Platform Admin Dashboard.

Additional settings are available by directly access the Wallaroo Administrative Service known as keycloak. This requires the following:

  1. A user credential with administrative access. If for some reason no user with administrative access is available, the default admin user and credentials are retrieved by a user with kubectl and administrative access to the cluster with the following.

    • Retrieve Keycloak Admin Username

      kubectl -n wallaroo \
      get secret keycloak-admin-secret \
      -o go-template='{{.data.KEYCLOAK_ADMIN_USER | base64decode }}'
      
    • Retrieve Keycloak Admin Password

      kubectl -n wallaroo \
      get secret keycloak-admin-secret \
      -o go-template='{{.data.KEYCLOAK_ADMIN_PASSWORD | base64decode }}'
      
  2. Access the user administrative service through the url https://keycloak.$WALLAROO_SUFFIX. For example, if the $WALLAROO_SUFFIX is wallaroo.example.com, the administrative access controls are access through https://keycloak.wallaroo.example.com.

When a new user logs in for the first time, they get an error when uploading a model or issues when they attempt to log in. How do I correct that?

When a new registered user attempts to upload a model, they may see the following error:

TransportQueryError: 
{'extensions': 
    {'path': 
        '$.selectionSet.insert_workspace_one.args.object[0]', 'code': 'not-supported'
    }, 
    'message': 
        'cannot proceed to insert array relations since insert to table "workspace" affects zero rows'

Or if they log into the Wallaroo Dashboard, they may see a Page not found error.

This is caused when a user has been registered without an appropriate email address. See the user guides here on inviting a user, or the Wallaroo Enterprise User Management on how to log into the Keycloak service and update users. Verify that the username and email address are both the same, and they are valid confirmed email addresses for the user.
