Hi Henryk,

Not sure if this is applicable to your setup, but an alternative is to point oc to admin.kubeconfig. E.g.:

oc --config /var/lib/origin/openshift.local.config/master/admin.kubeconfig adm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-admin developer

I've been using this way as 'oc login -u system:admin' didn't work with my dev setup (created using 'oc cluster up') for some reason. It seems to work when using minishift, so I'd love to know what's causing it as well.

If you have access to the master node that will work. Sometimes the master nodes will already have cached login as admin from setup of cluster and just being able to access the master node as root will leave you as admin user anyway.

Well the main issue is that a lot of customers change the user with 'oc login -u ...' when they a root on the masters, and then you can't login with system:admin!

I solved this with the following sequence.

oc config view |egrep 'context|default' # look for system:admin
oc set-context default/...../system:admin
oc use-context default/...../system:admin

My first advice to all users on the master servers is!

Don't use root for 'normal' oc work.

Create a user on the master switch to this user and run the oc commands as this user.
This is by far the safest way, afaik.

Another alternative is if you have granted specific user sudoer role access, then such a user could use impersonation to run:

   oc admin policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-admin developer --as system:admin

Hi Graham,
That would be probably fine. I assume that I should log in as system:admin in order to execute those commands, right?
The problem is that I cannot switch to system:admin...
oc login -u system:admin
Authentication required for
https://localhost:8443 (openshift)
Username: system:admin
error: username system:admin is invalid for basic auth
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

  Not sure if suits your requirements, but presuming 'username'

           oc adm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-reader username
  If only want them to be able to read view stuff but not modify, or:
           oc adm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-admin username
  if want to allow them full edit ability on cluster.
  Replace 'username' with actual name of user.
