Support kubeturbo communication flowing to a Secure Client

Kubeturbo communication need to be stablished directly to the SaaS Server, including On Prem Cloud Native clusters (in Hybrid environments). In a High secure environments with dozens (and even hundreds) of clusters, customers need to open firewall exceptions for each worker node, making management impossible and raising unnecessary risks.

We have the Secure Client entity working for this (secure the communication). Why not permit that kubeturbo IP Server declaration to be the SaaS Client IP and then, SaaS Client will relay to SaaS Server? Customer will only need to manage the SaaS Client firewall exception and communication.

    Hi Jason. Sorry I forgot to add an important information: The goal is to have a single Secure Client. Otherwise, customer will still need to manage and open one connection per cluster.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit the Idea.

    Kubeturbo deployed via the Kubeturbo Operator works with the SaaS Secure Client today using the Secure Client connection and not the direct connection to the SaaS server and has for quite some time now. Please review the IBM Docs for this here:

    Any questions let me know, thanks
