lack of RGW_API_HOST in ceph dashboard, 17.2.6, causes ceph mgr dashboard problems

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I am using 17.2.6 on Rocky Linux 8
The ceph mgr dashboard, in my situation, (bare metal install, upgraded from 15->16-> 17.2.6), can no longer hit the ObjectStore->(Daemons,Users,Buckets) pages.

When I try to hit those pages, it gives an error:
RGW REST API failed request with status code 403 {"Code": "AccessDenied", RequestId: "xxxxxxx", HostId: "yyyy-<my zone>"}

The log of the rgw server it hit has:

"GET /admin/metadata/user?myself HTTP/1.1" 403 125

It appears that the mgr dashboard setting RGW_API_HOST is no longer an option that can be set, nor does that name exist anywhere under /usr/share/ceph/mgr/dashboard, and:

# ceph dashboard set-rgw-api-host <host>

is no longer in existence in 17.2.6

However, since my situation is an upgrade, the config value still exists in my config, and I can retrieve it with:

# ceph dashboard get-rgw-api-host

To get the  to work in my situation, I have modified /usr/share/ceph/mgr/dashboard/ and re-added RGW_API_HOST to the Options class using 

RGW_API_HOST = Settings('', [dict,str])

I then modified /usr/share/ceph/mgr/dashboard/services/ such that each rgw daemon retrieved has its 'host' member set to Settings.RGW_API_HOST.

Then after restarting the mgr, I was able to access the Objectstore->(Daemons,Users,Buckets) pages in the dashboard.

HOWEVER, I know this is NOT the right way to fix this, it is a hack. It seems like the dashboard is trying to contact an rgw server individually. For us, the RGW_API_HOST is
a name in DNS:, that has multiple A records, one for each of our rgw servers, each of which have the *same* SSL cert with CN and SubjectAltNames that allow
the cert to present itself as both as well as the individual host name (SubjectAltName has ALL the rgw servers in it). This works well for us and has
done so since 15.x.y, The endpoint for the zone is set to Thus my users only have a single endpoint to care about, unless there is a failure situation onan rgw server. (We have other ways of handling that).
Any thoughts on the CORRECT way to handle this so I can have the ceph dashboard work with the ObjectStore->(Daemons,Users,Buckets) pages? Thanks.
