missing permissions for test user

I use a watcherList, which is supported by the official golang kubernetes lib, to get notifications about created, updated and removed services inside a kubernetes namespace. Here the snippet.

func (kc *KubernetesCollector) streamEvents(ctx context.Context) {
    kc.debugChannel <- fmt.Sprintf("Start streaming events from kubernetes API")

    watchList := cache.NewListWatchFromClient(kc.k8sClient.RESTClient(), "services", kc.k8sNamespace, fields.Everything())

    notificationCallbackToAddService := func(svc interface{}) {
        service := svc.(*v1.Service)
        kc.serviceNotificationChannel <- &serviceNotification{service, "add"}
    }

    notificationCallbackToDeleteService := func(svc interface{}) {
        service := svc.(*v1.Service)
        kc.serviceNotificationChannel <- &serviceNotification{service, "remove"}
    }

    callbacks := cache.ResourceEventHandlerFuncs{
        AddFunc:    notificationCallbackToAddService,
        DeleteFunc: notificationCallbackToDeleteService,
    }

    _, controller := cache.NewInformer(watchList, &v1.Service{}, time.Second*0, callbacks)
    go controller.Run(ctx.Done())
}

In my test I declare the kc.k8sClient over the public api address, which is defined in k8sAPI variable. Additionally I set the bearer token to authenticate against the cluster and skip to verify the insecure ssl certificate.

func TestK8sWatchList(t *testing.T) {
    require := require.New(t)
    ...
    k8sConfig, err := clientcmd.BuildConfigFromFlags(k8sAPI, "")
    require.NoError(err)

    k8sConfig.BearerToken = "<bearerToken>"
    k8sConfig.Transport = &http.Transport{
        TLSClientConfig: &tls.Config{
            InsecureSkipVerify: true,
        },
    }
    k8sClient, err := kubernetes.NewForConfig(k8sConfig)

    k8sCollector := NewK8sCollector(k8sClient, k8sNamespace)

    ...
}

When I execute the test, I receive the following error messages:

go test -v -timeout 500s <replaced>/t1k/pkg/collector -run TestK8sWatchList

I don’t understand why I get the error message, because the service account “t1k-test-serviceaccount” has in my opinion all required permissions. Now the defined service account, role and rolebinding for the test user.

apiVersion: v1
kind: ServiceAccount
metadata:
  namespace: t1k
  name: t1k-test-serviceaccount
---
apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
kind: Role
metadata:
  namespace: t1k
  name: t1k-test-role
rules:

  resources: ["*"]
  verbs: ["*"]

apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1

  kind: ServiceAccount
  apiGroup: ""
