Before spinnaker 1.17.1, there were no restrictions in creating applications by users. It is important now to restrict creating applications for enterprises to enforce enterprise policies in onboarding applications.

From 1.17.x, users can restrict application creation by setting the flag ‘fiat.restrictApplicationCreation’ to true. Permissions provided in the application will be ignored now and permissions provided in the external source are applied.

Fiat now accepts permissions from external sources for creating applications. By default, application permissions are stored in the front50. This article will help you create applications from external sources.

Below mentioned fields are explained in detail which help in creating applications from external sources.

Field Values Explanation
fiat.restrictApplicationCreation true/false

false: Default legacy application permissions are applied.

true: User can restrict application creation. This field value(true) is mandatory for creating applications through external sources.

auth.permissions.provider.application default/aggregate

default: Default legacy application permissions are applied.

aggregate: Adds permissions from external sources.

auth.permissions.source.application.prefix.resolutionStrategy AGGREGATE/MOST_SPECIFIC

AGGREGATE: Permissions will be aggregated from all matching prefixes.
