Portainer Support Policy

Hi there Portainer community.

As the uptake of Portainer continues to grow, we are faced with having to manage a  commensurate increase in the number of support requests coming in via our official Github page (https://github.com/portainer/portainer).

Being a free and opensource product, means we are heavily reliant on our community to provide "how to" support to our community, however there are times whereby the Portainer team will get involved to investigate reported bugs, or security vulnerabilities.

LDAP Users/Groups in Portainer

So, you have Portainer running, and now you want to integrate with your corporate LDAP directory in order to centralise user and group management? Well read up because this article is for you..

First up, Portainer will allow you to auto-create users that successfully authenticate via LDAP; however any users auto-created will not be able to access any endpoint unless they are manually granted access to an endpoint, or map to a corresponding Portainer Team which has access to an endpoint (a Portainer Team maps to an LDAP group when enabled).

Kubernetes Networking (on-premises)

Last week I had the opportunity to explain Kubernetes Networking in a way that needed to make sense to non-Kubernetes people; needless to say, this is not a trivial task, as Kubernetes is a complex beast, and networking is probably one of the most complex components.
