Openshift SSO with Gitlab

Page content

Configure Openshift Cluster to use Gitlab as a user backend for login with oauth2 and SSO.

Parts of the Openshift series

With Ansible-openshift you can not change the authetication method after Install !! If you installed the cluster with htpasswd, then change to LDAP the playbook trys to add a second authentication methot for the config. It is forbidden to add a second type of identity provider in the version 3.11 of Ansible-openshift. To solve this problem we must change the configuration manually.

Environment    deployer    openshift01 # master node    openshift02 # infra node    openshift03 # worker node
