kubectl proxy — Run a proxy to the Kubernetes API server

Synopsis

kubectl proxy [Options]

Description

To proxy all of the kubernetes api and nothing else, use:

kubectl proxy --api-prefix=/

To proxy only part of the kubernetes api and also some static files:

kubectl proxy --www=/my/files --www-prefix=/static/ --api-prefix=/api/

The above lets you 'curl localhost:8001/api/v1/pods'.

To proxy the entire kubernetes api at a different root, use:

kubectl proxy --api-prefix=/custom/

The above lets you 'curl localhost:8001/custom/api/v1/pods'

Options

--accept-hosts="^localhost$,^127\.0\.0\.1$,^\[::1\]$"
Regular expression for hosts that the proxy should accept.
--accept-paths="^/.*"
Regular expression for paths that the proxy should accept.
--address="127.0.0.1"
The IP address on which to serve on.
--api-prefix="/"
Prefix to serve the proxied API under.
--disable-filter=false
If true, disable request filtering in the proxy. This is dangerous, and can leave you vulnerable to XSRF attacks, when used with an accessible port.
-p, --port=8001
The port on which to run the proxy. Set to 0 to pick a random port.
--reject-methods="POST,PUT,PATCH"
Regular expression for HTTP methods that the proxy should reject.
--reject-paths="^/api/./exec,^/api/./run,^/api/.*/attach"
Regular expression for paths that the proxy should reject.
-u, --unix-socket=""
Unix socket on which to run the proxy.
-w, --www=""
Also serve static files from the given directory under the specified prefix.
-P, --www-prefix="/static/"
Prefix to serve static files under, if static file directory is specified.

Example

# Run a proxy to kubernetes apiserver on port 8011, serving static content from ./local/www/
kubectl proxy --port=8011 --www=./local/www/

# Run a proxy to kubernetes apiserver on an arbitrary local port.
# The chosen port for the server will be output to stdout.
kubectl proxy --port=0

# Run a proxy to kubernetes apiserver, changing the api prefix to k8s-api
# This makes e.g. the pods api available at localhost:8011/k8s-api/v1/pods/
kubectl proxy --api-prefix=/k8s-api
