Common recommendations and suggestions
Any recommendation or good practice suggested by the Kubernetes community such as to develop Operator pattern solutions or to manage them are good recommendations for who is looking for to build the operator projects and distribute them with OLM. Also, see Operator Best Practices.
Validate your bundle before publish it
Check and test your operator bundle before you publish it. Note that the
operator-sdk CLI can help with that process. You can validate a bundle via
operator-sdk bundle validate against the entire suite of validators for Operator Framework, in addition to required bundle validators:
operator-sdk bundle validate ./bundle --select-optional suite=operatorframework
Also, you can validate a bundle via
operator-sdk scorecard to insure it against a suite of tests:
operator-sdk scorecard bundle
Provide what are the k8s versions supported by your project
In the CSV manifest of your operator bundle, you can set the
spec.minKubeVersion property to inform what is the minimal Kubernetes version which your project supports:
... spec: maturity: alpha version: 0.4.0 minKubeVersion: 1.16.0
It is recommended you provide this information. Otherwise, it would mean that your operator project can be distributed and installed in any cluster version available, which is not necessarily the case for all projects.
