oadm groups sync — Sync OpenShift groups with records from an external provider.


oadm groups sync [Options]


Sync OpenShift Groups with records from an external provider.

In order to sync OpenShift Group records with those from an external provider, determine which Groups you wish to sync and where their records live. For instance, all or some groups may be selected from the current Groups stored in OpenShift that have been synced previously, or similarly all or some groups may be selected from those stored on an LDAP server. The path to a sync configuration file is required in order to describe how data is requested from the external record store and migrated to OpenShift records. Default behavior is to do a dry-run without changing OpenShift records. Passing '--confirm' will sync all groups from the LDAP server returned by the LDAP query templates.



If true, ignore any errors in templates when a field or map key is missing in the template. Only applies to golang and jsonpath output formats.

if true, modify OpenShift groups; if false, display results of a dry-run


When using the default or custom-column output format, don't print headers (default print headers).

-o, --output="yaml"

See custom columns [ ⟨http://kubernetes.io/docs/user-guide/kubectl-overview/#custom-columns⟩], golang template [ ⟨http://golang.org/pkg/text/template/#pkg-overview⟩] and jsonpath template [ ⟨http://kubernetes.io/docs/user-guide/jsonpath⟩].

-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.


path to the sync config


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/#pkg-overview⟩].
