Venafi Connection overview

Venafi Connection is used to configure the connection and authentication between Venafi Control Plane and your Kubernetes cluster.

You can install the Venafi Connection CRDs and RBAC as part of Venafi Enhanced Issuer or Approver Policy Enterprise.

Venafi Connection is a "namespaced" resource. Any service account or secret referenced by a Venafi Connection must be in the same namespace as the Venafi Connection resource or in a namespace that matches the allowReferencesFrom field, as described in cross namespace Venafi Connection references.

You can add the custom resources definitions for Venafi Connections to your Kubernetes API server when you install one of the projects that use the Venafi Connection resources as configuration.
