Known Issues

  • The sample assembly yaml files provided specify the same subTopic: "data". To start multiple assemblies in parallel, change the subTopic to a unique value, such as subTopic: "odbc-assembly". The corresponding change will also need to be made when enrolling the client. For example: curl https://${INSIGHTS_HOSTNAME}/clientcontroller/enrol -H "Authorization: Bearer " -d '{ "name": "my-client", "topics": { "insert": "odbc-assembly", "query": "requests" }}'

  • The UI may produce pop-up error messages in various scenarios.

  • The UI does not have Reports available.

  • KXI CLI error handling is currently basic. If the CLI throws a stack trace, use the underlying kubectl command to see the issue more clearly. For example, to see a yaml syntax error returned by a modified basic_assembly.yaml file, run: kubectl apply -f basic_assembly.yaml .

  • KX ODBC driver and Java SDK do not work when using Insights installed on an AWS cluster.

Backward Compatibility

  • If you're upgrading from a previous version or the CRD is already installed, helm will not update the definition automatically. See Operator Overview Helm Warning for details on how to rectify this.
