|success||Everything is fine, your application has been deployed, and is up and running.|

First debugging steps¶
When something is wrong with your application, these kubectl commands should be the first things you check out:
List the pods for your application for a quick overview of their status¶
Describe a given pod to get more detailed statuses and messages¶
This may reveal which container is failing and any exit codes that are emitted.
View the logs for your pods¶
This will output the logs from your application container.
If there are other containers in your pod (which you can see from the
describe command above), you may view the
logs by specifying the exact container:
All deployments are logged to Kibana. You can get a direct link to your deployment logs from https://deploy.nais.io or the
https://github.com/navikt/<YOUR_REPOSITORY>/deployments page. Click on the link that says deployed.
This link is also printed in the console output. It looks like
|403 authentication failed||Either you're using the wrong team API key, or if using the old version of NAIS deploy, your team is not registered in the team portal.|
|502 bad gateway||There is some transient error with GitHub. Please try again later. If the problem persists, ask @nais-team for help.|
|deployment failed: failed authentication||Wrong team API key, please check https://deploy.nais.io/ for the correct key.|
|failed authentication: HMAC signature error||See above.|

|MountVolume.SetUp failed for volume "

|no team specified, and unable to auto-detect from nais.yaml||The resource is missing the "team" label.|
Secret not found¶
When describing a pod or inspecting the deployment logs, you might find the following message:
Events: Type Reason Age From Message ---- ------ ---- ---- ------- ... Warning FailedMount 22m (x5 over 22m) kubelet MountVolume.SetUp failed for volume "<secret-name>" : secret "<secret-name>" not found
Some secrets (such as those from Azure AD or Kafka) are eventually consistent.
Typically, the message appears on either:
- First-time deployments where the secret has to be provisioned, or
- As part of a secret rotation process
Generally, the warning message should not persist or be stuck for more than a minute.
Follow the steps below to verify that the secret exists:
Step 1. Verify Pod events¶
If the event log looks like this:
Events: Type Reason Age From Message ---- ------ ---- ---- ------- Normal Scheduled 2m22s default-scheduler Successfully assigned <namespace>/<pod> to <node> Warning FailedMount 2m20s (x3 over 2m22s) kubelet MountVolume.SetUp failed for volume "<secret-name>" : secret "<secret-name>" not found Normal Pulling 2m18s kubelet Pulling image "<docker-image>" Normal Pulled 117s kubelet Successfully pulled image "<docker-image>" Normal Created 61s (x4 over 115s) kubelet Created container <app> Normal Started 61s (x4 over 115s) kubelet Started container <app>
Then the secret was successfully found and your application's container has been started.
If the event log looks like this:
Events: Type Reason Age From Message ---- ------ ---- ---- ------- Normal Scheduled 4m53s default-scheduler Successfully assigned <namespace>/<pod> to <node> Warning FailedMount 2m50s kubelet Unable to attach or mount volumes: unmounted volumes=[<secret-name>], unattached volumes=[<secret-name>]: timed out waiting for the condition Warning FailedMount 43s (x10 over 4m53s) kubelet MountVolume.SetUp failed for volume "<secret-name>" : secret "<secret-name>" not found Warning FailedMount 35s kubelet Unable to attach or mount volumes: unmounted volumes=[<secret-name>], unattached volumes=[<secret-name>]: timed out waiting for the condition
Then you should report this to the #nais channel on Slack.
Step 2. Verify that the Secret exists¶
With kubectl, run the following command to verify that the secret exists:
Step 3. Check related resources¶
Depending on which system provides the secret, there are other resources that could contain information about your problem.
By looking at these resources, you can often find the direct cause of the problem.
See the following table for information about which resources you can look at for various kinds of secrets.
Once you know the type of resource, use
kubectl describe <resource> <app name> to look at it.
Typically, you should inspect the
Status parts of the output.
|Type of secret||Resource to check|
If you have followed the above checklist, verified that the secret does not exist, and can't see a reason for that, please contact #nais for further assistance.
Asking on Slack¶
If you read this entire page, and checked your logs, and checked application status with
kubectl, you can ask Slack for help. Use the #nais channel and include the following information:
- Team tag
- Cluster name
- Link to logs
- What steps you already took to debug the error
