Custom AKS policy support - now public preview

Published date: September 01, 2021

Embedded Support & New Template Info Property

  • TemplateInfo allows users to define the source type for the constraint template. TemplateInfo currently supports two ways to define the constraint template source type: Base64Encodedand PublicUrl. Base64Encoded format privately embeds the constraint template within an Azure policy definition.
  • With the use of templateInfo, Azure Policy will now auto-generate the constraint property for you.

Error State Reporting & Compliance Reason Codes

  • Azure dataplane policies targeting Azure Kubernetes clusters now provide compliance reason codes for any template errors or conflicts preventing accurate policy evaluation.
  • For existing policy assignments and constraint templates already on the cluster, if that Constraint/Template fails, the cluster is protected by maintaining the existing Constraint/Template. The cluster reports as non-compliant until the failure is resolved on the policy assignment or the add-on self-heals.
  • Existing conflicting policies will function normally but will now report a conflict to users. If the conflicting policies are not already installed on the cluster, they will not be installed until conflicts are resolved.

Azure Policy VS Code Extension Enhancements

  • You can now auto-generate an Azure Policy custom definition from a constraint template. Based on user input, the extension will either embed the constraint template for you in embedded64 format or allow you to input a public URL for a given constraint template.
