Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM) controls the installation, upgrade, and role-based access control (RBAC) of Operators in a cluster. The OLM runs by default in OpenShift Container Platform. OLM queries for available Operators as well as upgrades for installed Operators. For more information about how OpenShift Container Platform handles upgrades, see the Operator Lifecycle Manager documentation.
During an update, the Red Hat OpenShift distributed tracing Operators upgrade the managed distributed tracing instances to the version associated with the Operator. Whenever a new version of the Red Hat OpenShift distributed tracing platform Operator is installed, all the distributed tracing platform application instances managed by the Operator are upgraded to the Operator’s version. For example, after upgrading the Operator from 1.10 installed to 1.11, the Operator scans for running distributed tracing platform instances and upgrades them to 1.11 as well.
