    When you have several kubernetes objects (CRDs) that work together it can be useful to be able to query them all together to get a better idea of what's deployed without having to query all the individial resources. With operator-SDK we just need to annotate the objects.

    Sometimes might be difficult to tell how some subject (User, ServiceAccount, ...) is able to perform a certain task: What's the Role or ClusterRole granting some permission?

    OpenShift APIRequestCount monitoring API usage

    Openshift provides an object that tracks the number of requests made to the Kubernetes API server. It provides insights into the load on the cluster, the performance of applications, and helps in capacity planning. By monitoring APIRequestCount, you can identify potential bottlenecks, detect unusual spikes in traffic, and optimize resource allocation.
