Integration of OpenShift Web Console with Monitoring OpenShift application

A node-js application that listens on port 8080 and returns a script.js, that is used by the OpenShift Web Console to embed links from the Logs page directly to Splunk.

The script.js based on the example from Extension Option for External Logging Solutions. The integration is based on the Loading Extension Scripts and Stylesheets.

Web Console Example

Install the application

Switch to the collectorforopenshift project if you want to keep the app under the same project as our collector.

oc project collectorforopenshift

You can install the application from our template or from the source.

Install from the template

Skip if you are planning to install from the source

Create application from the template (change the SPLUNK_WEB_URL to the URL of your Splunk Web)

oc new-app -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/outcoldsolutions/openshift-webconsole-integration/v1.1.0/openshift/templates/outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration.yaml \
    --param=SPLUNK_WEB_URL=http://splunk.example.com:8000 \
    --param=SOURCE_REPOSITORY_REF=v1.1.0

You can verify all the created workloads and objects with

oc get all -l app=outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration

Parameters

  • SOURCE_REPOSITORY_URL - source URL. The default value is https://github.com/outcoldsolutions/openshift-webconsole-integration. You can fork this repository and specify a different URL.
  • SOURCE_REPOSITORY_REF - the reference of the repository (branch or tag). The default value is empty (master).
  • SPLUNK_WEB_URL - the path to the Splunk Web interface. The default value is https://localhost:8000.
  • APPLICATION_DOMAIN - if you want to override the default hostname of the exposed route. Default value is outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration-collectorforopenshift.apps.example.com, where apps.example.com is the openshift_master_default_subdomain.
  • REPLICA_COUNT - the number of replicas to run. The default value is 1.

Install from the source

Skip, if you have installed it from the template.

Clone the repo

git clone https://github.com/outcoldsolutions/openshift-webconsole-integration
cd openshift-webconsole-integration

Create a new application from the repo

oc new-app . --name outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration --labels=app=outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration

Set the URL to your Splunk instance

oc set env dc/outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration SPLUNK_WEB_URL='http://splunk.example.com:8000'

Create the route

oc create route edge --service=outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration 

Uninstall the application

If you wish to uninstall the application with all dependencies, please use the following command. You need to execute it under the same project where you created it.

oc delete all -l app=outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration

Web Console integration

Get the URL of the script.js

echo "https://$(oc get route outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration -o=jsonpath='{.spec.host}')/script.js"

The URL will look similar to

https://outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration-collectorforopenshift.apps.example.com/script.js

Verify first that you can open this URL in the browser. If you are using self-signed certificate, you will need to trust this URL first.

Follow the instructions of Loading Extension Scripts and Stylesheets how to load external scripts in your Web Console.

Resulting ConfigMap will look similar to

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
data:
  webconsole-config.yaml: |
    apiVersion: webconsole.config.openshift.io/v1
    extensions:
      scriptURLs:
        - https://outcoldsolutions-webconsole-integration-collectorforopenshift.apps.example.com/script.js
  ...

Web Console automatically picks up the updated configuration. Refresh the Web Console in the browser.

Troubleshooting

Open development console in your browser. Refresh the page and locate script.js from the URL specified above. If you see not a 200 code, troubleshoot base on the error code.

Web Console Dev Console

If you don't see a script, you can try to delete the Pods with OpenShift console, so the new Pods can pick up an updated configuration

oc delete pods -n openshift-web-console -l app=openshift-web-console
