@gospl Can you also reproduce this same issue on a local development cluster? If not, then there may be an issue with K8s resource definitions. If so, then you need to provide a reproducible test case in order to better assist you. For example, what are the steps to generate this error message and do you have a Github or other repository that can be reviewed? Well, I must go and I look forward to your feedback.

Think different and code well,
