Troubleshooting: AGIC addon, identity not found


AGIC fails to start due to "Identity not found" even though the User Managed Identity is assigned to the AKS nodes and has the right permissions.

Resolve the issue

Team is working on the fix, currently to resolve the issue above, agic client identity will need to be reassigned to AKS nodes. Please perform the following commands in your Azure Cloud Shell.

nodeResourceGroup=$(az aks show -n $aksClusterName -g $resourceGroup --query "nodeResourceGroup" -o tsv)
aksVmssId=$(az vmss list -g $nodeResourceGroup --query "[0].id" -o tsv)
agicIdentity=$(az aks show -n $aksClusterName -g $resourceGroup --query "addonProfiles.IngressApplicationGateway.identity.resourceId" -o tsv)

az vmss identity remove --ids $aksVmssId --identities $agicIdentity
az vmss identity assign --ids $aksVmssId --identities $agicIdentity
