Failed to load secrets

I’m new to Lens and have an issue, that I have no clue on how to solve.

When I’m connected to our cluster and navigate to Config → Secrets, I get a “Item list is empty” and a warning saying “Faild to load /api/v1/secrets: secrets is forbidden: User “” cannot list resource “secrets” in API group “” at the cluster scope”

However, “kubectl get secrets” works just fine with the same kubeconfig - even from the Lens Terminal itself. So I do have the correct permissions. Additionally, all my colleagues can access the Secrets in Lens and we all have the same permissions.

Lens: 2023.11.131420-latest
Extension API: 6.22.6
Electron: 25.8.3
Chrome: 114.0.5735.289
Node: 18.15.0

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

Hi @gkoleva ,

thank you for that tip, I wasn’t aware of it.
I did submit my issue there (Id #3599), but I haven’t heard anything in two days now…

So, if you can somehow help me here or speed up the process with the dedicated Support Team, that would be great :slight_smile:

Best regards

The secrets issue should be solved by switching manually to the namespace to which the customer has list permissions in the namespace multi-select dropdown menu.
