oc adm migrate image-references — Update embedded Docker image references


oc adm migrate image-references [Options]


Migrate references to Docker images

This command updates embedded Docker image references on the server in place. By default it will update image streams and images, and may be used to update resources with a pod template (deployments, replication controllers, daemon sets).

References are changed by providing a mapping between a source registry and name and the desired registry and name. Either name or registry can be set to ' *' to change all values. The registry value "docker.io" is special and will handle any image reference that refers to the DockerHub. You may pass multiple mappings - the first matching mapping will be applied per resource.

The following resource types may be migrated by this command:

· buildconfigs

· daemonsets

· deploymentconfigs

· images

· imagestreams

· jobs

· pods

· replicationcontrollers

· secrets (docker)

Only images, imagestreams, and secrets are updated by default. Updating images and image streams requires administrative privileges.



Migrate objects in all namespaces. Defaults to true.


If true, all requested objects will be migrated. Defaults to false.

-f, --filename=[]

Filename, directory, or URL to docker-compose.yml file to use


If specified, only migrate items with a key (namespace/name or name) greater than or equal to this value


Resource types to migrate. Passing --filename will override this flag.


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

-o, --output=""

Output the modified objects instead of saving them, valid values are 'yaml' or 'json'


If specified, only migrate items with a key (namespace/name or name) less than this value

Options Inherited from Parent Commands


DEPRECATED: The API version to use when talking to the server


Username to impersonate for the operation


Path to the file container Azure container registry configuration information.


Path to a cert. file for the certificate authority


Path to a client certificate file for TLS


Path to a client key file for TLS


The name of the kubeconfig cluster to use


Path to the config file to use for CLI requests.


The name of the kubeconfig context to use


The Google Cloud Platform Service Account JSON Key to use for authentication.


If true, the server's certificate will not be checked for validity. This will make your HTTPS connections insecure


Maximum number of seconds between log flushes


Require server version to match client version

-n, --namespace=""

If present, the namespace scope for this CLI request


The length of time to wait before giving up on a single server request. Non-zero values should contain a corresponding time unit (e.g. 1s, 2m, 3h). A value of zero means don't timeout requests.


The address and port of the Kubernetes API server


Bearer token for authentication to the API server


The name of the kubeconfig user to use
