Proto: dashboard.proto

Package: admin.gloo.solo.io



Dashboard describes the settings for the Gloo Mesh Enterprise dashboard. Currently, this resource is only used to secure the Gloo Mesh Enterprise Dashboard by requiring authentication with an OpenID Connect identity provider. Users accessing the dashboard will be required to authenticate with the OIDC provider and all requests to retrieve data from the API will also be authenticated.

The following example sets up OIDC authentication:

apiVersion: admin.gloo.solo.io/v2
kind: Dashboard
  name: settings
  namespace: gloo-mesh
      appUrl: https://localhost:8080
      clientId: $CLIENT_ID
      clientSecretName: dashboard
      issuerUrl: https://accounts.google.com
Field Description
authn (DashboardSpec.AuthnConfig)

Configuration used to authenticate incoming requests.
authz (DashboardSpec.AuthzConfig)

Configuration used to authorize incoming requests.


Field Description
oidc (OidcConfig)


Field Description
multiClusterRbac (MultiClusterRbac)

Enable multi cluster RBAC. When this is enabled, Gloo Mesh Enterprise will use RBAC resources from managed clusters to determine if users are allowed to see resources in the dashbaord. For this to work, the dashboard and the kubernetes clusters need to have the same identity source (i.e. OIDC with the same user and group claims). When using OIDC, make sure to configure the userMapping field.


Field Description
observedGeneration (int64)

The most recent generation observed in the Dashboard metadata. If the observedGeneration does not match metadata.generation, Gloo Mesh has not processed the most recent version of this resource.
state (common.gloo.solo.io.ApprovalState)

The state of the overall resource. It will only show accepted if no processing errors encountered.
errors (repeated string)

Any errors encountered while processing Settings object.


The json web key set (JWKS) is discovered at an interval from a remote source. When keys rotate in the remote source, there may be a delay in the local source picking up those new keys. Therefore, a user could execute a request with a token that has been signed by a key in the remote JWKS, but the local cache doesn't have the key yet. The request would fail because the key isn't contained in the local set. Since most IdPs publish key keys in their remote JWKS before they are used, this is not an issue most of the time. This policy lets you define the behavior for when a user has a token with a key not yet in the local cache.

Field Description
never (google.protobuf.Empty)

Never refresh the local JWKS cache on demand. If a key is not in the cache, it is assumed to be malicious. This is the default policy since we assume that IdPs publish keys before they rotate them, and frequent polling finds the newest keys. For information about the value format, see the Google protocol buffer documentation.
always (google.protobuf.Empty)

If a key is not in the cache, fetch the most recent keys from the IdP and update the cache. NOTE: This should only be done in trusted environments, since missing keys will each trigger a request to the IdP. Using this in an environment exposed to the internet will allow malicious agents to execute a DDoS attack by spamming protected endpoints with tokens signed by invalid keys. For information about the value format, see the Google protocol buffer documentation.
maxIdpReqPerPollingInterval (uint32)

If a key is not in the cache, fetch the most recent keys from the IdP and update the cache. This value sets the number of requests to the IdP per polling interval. If that limit is exceeded, we will stop fetching from the IdP for the remainder of the polling interval.



Field Description
clientId (string)

The client ID from the issuer
clientSecretName (string)

The client secret from the issuer
issuerUrl (string)

The url of the issuer. We will look for OIDC information in: {{ issuerURL }}/.well-known/openid-configuration
authEndpointQueryParams (repeated OidcConfig.AuthEndpointQueryParamsEntry)

Extra query parameters to apply to the authorization request to the identity provider. For example, using the PKCE flow by setting code_challenge and code_challenge_method.
tokenEndpointQueryParams (repeated OidcConfig.TokenEndpointQueryParamsEntry)

Extra query parameters to apply to the token request to the identity provider. For example, using the PKCE flow by setting code_challenge and code_challenge_method.
appUrl (string)

URL to redirect to after successful auth.
callbackPath (string)

Path to handle the OIDC callback.
logoutPath (string)

Path used to logout. If not provided, logout will be disabled.
scopes (repeated string)

Scopes to request in addition to ‘openid’.
session (SessionConfig)

Configuration for session storage.
discoveryOverride (OidcConfig.DiscoveryOverride)

Ensure that certain values are set regardless of what the OIDC provider returns.
discoveryPollInterval (google.protobuf.Duration)

How often to poll the OIDC issuer for new configuration. For information about the value format, see the Google protocol buffer documentation.
jwksCacheRefreshPolicy (JwksOnDemandCacheRefreshPolicy)

If a user executes a request with a key that is not found in the JWKS, it could be that the keys have rotated on the remote source, and not yet in the local cache. This policy lets you define the behavior for how to refresh the local cache during a request where an invalid key is provided
userMapping (UserMapping)

If set, the ID token will used to infer user identity, that can be used to make authorization decisions. If not specified, no authorization will be made.
caCertConfigmapName (string)

A name of a config map containing root cert to use when talking with the OIDC provider. The config map must contain the a key named “ca.crt” with PEM encoded CA.


Field Description
key (string)

value (string)


OIDC configuration is discovered at /.well-known/openid-configuration The discovery override defines any properties that should override this discovery configuration.

Field Description

URL of the provider authorization endpoint.
tokenEndpoint (string)

URL of the provider token endpoint.

responseTypes (repeated string)

List of response types that the provider supports.
subjects (repeated string)

Field Description
