Namespaces help different projects or teams share a StorageOS cluster. Only the default namespace is created by default.

Namespaces apply to volumes.

Managing Namespaces

In order to create a new namespace navigate to “Namespaces” in the GUI, and select “Create Namespace”.

When a Kubernetes PVC is created in a namespace, StorageOS automatically maps the Volume in the same namespace. Namespaces are created by StorageOS to fulfil the RBAC rules enforced by Kubernetes roles.

In order to delete a namespace, all volumes must be deleted from the namespace before the namespace can be deleted.
