oc extract — Extract secrets or config maps to disk


oc extract [Options]


Extract files out of secrets and config maps

The extract command makes it easy to download the contents of a config map or secret into a directory. Each key in the config map or secret is created as a separate file with the name of the key, as it is when you mount a secret or config map into a container.

You can limit which keys are extracted with the --keys=NAME flag, or set the directory to extract to with --to=DIRECTORY.


Overwrite files that already exist.
-f, --filename=[]
Filename, directory, or URL to file to identify to extract the resource.
An optional list of keys to extract (default is all keys).
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').
-a, --show-all=true
When printing, show all resources (false means 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…⟩].
Directory to extract files to.
