This guide will give an overview on how KubeDB Enterprise operator reconfigures TLS configuration i.e. add TLS, remove TLS, update issuer/cluster issuer or Certificates and rotate the certificates of a
The following diagram shows how KubeDB Enterprise operator reconfigures TLS of a
MongoDB database. Open the image in a new tab to see the enlarged version.
The Reconfiguring MongoDB TLS process consists of the following steps:
At first, a user creates a
MongoDB Custom Resource Object (CRO).
KubeDB Community operator watches the
When the operator finds a
MongoDB CR, it creates required number of
StatefulSets and related necessary stuff like secrets, services, etc.
Then, in order to reconfigure the TLS configuration of the
MongoDB database the user creates a
MongoDBOpsRequest CR with desired information.
KubeDB Enterprise operator watches the
When it finds a
MongoDBOpsRequest CR, it pauses the
MongoDB object which is referred from the
MongoDBOpsRequest. So, the
KubeDB Community operator doesn’t perform any operations on the
MongoDB object during the reconfiguring TLS process.
KubeDB Enterprise operator will add, remove, update or rotate TLS configuration based on the Ops Request yaml.
KubeDB Enterprise operator will restart all the Pods of the database so that they restart with the new TLS configuration defined in the
After the successful reconfiguring of the
MongoDB TLS, the
KubeDB Enterprise operator resumes the
MongoDB object so that the
KubeDB Community operator resumes its usual operations.
In the next docs, we are going to show a step by step guide on reconfiguring TLS configuration of a MongoDB database using
