Before I dive into the OPA vs. Kyverno comparison, we first need to understand Policy as Code?

What is Policy as Code?

As per definition: Policy as Code is the process of managing and provisioning policy enforcement tooling through machine-readable definition files, rather than best practice documentation or interactive configuration…

As per the official github link kubewatch is a Kubernetes watcher that publishes notifications to Slack/hipchat/mattermost/flock channels. It watches the cluster for resource changes and notifies them through webhooks.

Basically kubewatch looks for events like pod/deployment/confimap creation/deletion and sends notification to selected channels like

  • slack
  • hipchat
  • mattermost
  • flock
  • webhook
  • smtp
