Am I missing a value in values.yaml somewhere?
Hi Charles - this is when using the helm chart?
Hey Daniel! thanks for responding - yes that is when we're using the helm chart.
I see - how did you configure your run launcher in your values.yaml? looks like this is related to the loadInclusterConfig / kubeconfigFile settings
These are the relevant bits from the values.yaml - https://github.com/dagster-io/dagster/blob/master/helm/dagster/values.yaml#L384-L388 . What exactly you put here likely depends on your cluster, but your dagit pod needs to be able to load the correct kubeconfig in order to be able to launch pods for runs
hey Daniel, I just left it as the default k8srunner, trying to load the inclusterconfig is where it fails
and just to double-check, those are logs from your dagit pod I assume?
I am using workload identity for GKE, I am wondering if it has to do with this: https://github.com/kubernetes-client/python-base/issues/159; if this is the case, are there other people trying to use workload identity with dagster?
ah I was just searching around and found a similar error related to GKE Workload Identity (from airflow not dagster, but both systems try to load the cluster config I think): https://stackoverflow.com/questions/57312376/unable-to-execute-airflow-kubernetesexecutor#comment117873811_57398011
I'm looking through https://cloud.google.com/kubernetes-engine/docs/how-to/cluster-access-for-kubectl now to see if there's some way to generate a kubeconfig file that you could use with the kubeconfigFile setting
hm, I apologize I'm kind of new to k8s. the kubeconfigFile will hold the service token details too?
I appreciate all the help you're giving me 🙂
Hey Daniel! I figured it out actually thanks to the link you gave me.
I created the workload identity and all it took was updating the configuration on the service account
Copy code
module "k8s-workload-identity" {
  depends_on                      = [kubernetes_namespace.namespace]
  source                          = "terraform-google-modules/kubernetes-engine/google//modules/workload-identity"
  name                            = "${var.namespace_name}-${var.environment}-ksa"
  namespace                       = var.namespace_name
  project_id                      = var.project_id
  automount_service_account_token = true
Ahhh, great! We should add this to the docs under deploying on Google Cloud. @Dagster Bot docs document how to run the helm chart when using GKE Workload Identity
