kubectl replace — Replace a resource by filename or stdin.

Synopsis

kubectl replace [Options]

Description

Replace a resource by filename or stdin.

JSON and YAML formats are accepted. If replacing an existing resource, the complete resource spec must be provided. This can be obtained by $ kubectl get TYPE NAME -o yaml

Please refer to the models in ⟨https://htmlpreview.github.io/?https://…⟩ to find if a field is mutable.

Options

--cascade=false
Only relevant during a force replace. If true, cascade the deletion of the resources managed by this resource (e.g. Pods created by a ReplicationController).
-f, --filename=[]
Filename, directory, or URL to file to use to replace the resource.
--force=false
Delete and re-create the specified resource
--grace-period=-1
Only relevant during a force replace. Period of time in seconds given to the old resource to terminate gracefully. Ignored if negative.
--include-extended-apis=true
If true, include definitions of new APIs via calls to the API server. [default true]
-o, --output=""
Output mode. Use "-o name" for shorter output (resource/name).
--record=false
Record current kubectl command in the resource annotation.
-R, --recursive=false
Process the directory used in -f, --filename recursively. Useful when you want to manage related manifests organized within the same directory.
--save-config=false
If true, the configuration of current object will be saved in its annotation. This is useful when you want to perform kubectl apply on this object in the future.
--schema-cache-dir=" /.kube/schema"
If non-empty, load/store cached API schemas in this directory, default is '$HOME/.kube/schema'
--timeout=0
Only relevant during a force replace. The length of time to wait before giving up on a delete of the old resource, zero means determine a timeout from the size of the object
--validate=true
If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it
