kubectl rolling-update — Perform a rolling update of the given ReplicationController.


kubectl rolling-update [Options]


Perform a rolling update of the given ReplicationController.

Replaces the specified replication controller with a new replication controller by updating one pod at a time to use the new PodTemplate. The new-controller.json must specify the same namespace as the existing replication controller and overwrite at least one (common) label in its replicaSelector.


Container name which will have its image upgraded. Only relevant when --image is specified, ignored otherwise. Required when using --image on a multi-container pod
The key to use to differentiate between two different controllers, default 'deployment'. Only relevant when --image is specified, ignored otherwise
If true, only print the object that would be sent, without sending it.
-f, --filename=[]
Filename or URL to file to use to create the new replication controller.
Image to use for upgrading the replication controller. Must be distinct from the existing image (either new image or new image tag). Can not be used with --filename/-f
Explicit policy for when to pull container images. Required when --image is same as existing image, ignored otherwise.
If true, include definitions of new APIs via calls to the API server. [default true]
When using the default output, don't print headers.
-o, --output=""
Output format. One of: json|yaml|wide|name|go-template=...|go-template-file=...|jsonpath=...|jsonpath-file=... See golang template [ ⟨http://golang.org/pkg/text/template/#pk…⟩] and jsonpath template [ ⟨http://releases.k8s.io/release-1.3/docs…⟩].
Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').
Time delay between polling for replication controller status after the update. Valid time units are "ns", "us" (or "µs"), "ms", "s", "m", "h".
If true, this is a request to abort an existing rollout that is partially rolled out. It effectively reverses current and next and runs a rollout
--schema-cache-dir=" /.kube/schema"
If non-empty, load/store cached API schemas in this directory, default is '$HOME/.kube/schema'
-a, --show-all=false
When printing, show all resources (default hide terminated pods.)
When printing, show all labels as the last column (default hide labels column)
If non-empty, sort list types using this field specification. The field specification is expressed as a JSONPath expression (e.g. '{.metadata.name}'). The field in the API resource specified by this JSONPath expression must be an integer or a string.
Template string or path to template file to use when -o=go-template, -o=go-template-file. The template format is golang templates [ ⟨http://golang.org/pkg/text/template/#pk…⟩].
Max time to wait for a replication controller to update before giving up. Valid time units are "ns", "us" (or "µs"), "ms", "s", "m", "h".
Time to wait between updating pods. Valid time units are "ns", "us" (or "µs"), "ms", "s", "m", "h".
If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it
