When users purchase software and install operators and applications, Red Hat Marketplace Operator watches for and gets configuration changes and resource updates from Red Hat Marketplace. Once the Operator has the information, it updates your cluster.
The Operator watches Red Hat Marketplace for activity regarding your purchases, gets configuration changes and updates, and then updates your cluster. Messages between your cluster and Red Hat Marketplace connect over HTTPS.
Red Hat Marketplace Operator uses Razee, an open-source continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes. Our deployment of Razee is installed with cluster read permissions, and only has write access to perform the work necessary to effectively manage deployments to your cluster. For more information on Razee or to build your own Razee agent, go to the Razee repository on GitHub.
