oc get — Display one or many resources


oc get [Options]


Display one or many resources

Possible resources include builds, buildConfigs, services, pods, etc. To see a list of common resources, use 'oc get'. Some resources may omit advanced details that you can see with '-o wide'.  If you want an even more detailed view, use 'oc describe'.



If present, list the requested object(s) across all namespaces. Namespace in current context is ignored even if specified with --namespace.


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, use 'export' for the resources.  Exported resources are stripped of cluster-specific information.

-f, --filename=[]

Filename, directory, or URL to files identifying the resource to get from a server.


Treat "resource not found" as a successful retrieval.


If true, include definitions of new APIs via calls to the API server. [default true]

-L, --label-columns=[]

Accepts a comma separated list of labels that are going to be presented as columns. Names are case-sensitive. You can also use multiple flag options like -L label1 -L label2...


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

-o, --output=""

Output format. One of: json|yaml|wide|name|custom-columns=...|custom-columns-file=...|go-template=...|go-template-file=...|jsonpath=...|jsonpath-file=... 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⟩].


Raw URI to request from the server.  Uses the transport specified by the kubeconfig file.

-R, --recursive=false

Process the directory used in -f, --filename recursively. Useful when you want to manage related manifests organized within the same directory.

-l, --selector=""

Selector (label query) to filter on, supports '=', '==', and '!='.

-a, --show-all=true

When printing, show all resources (false means hide terminated pods.)


If present, list the resource type for the requested object(s).


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/#pkg-overview⟩].

-w, --watch=false

After listing/getting the requested object, watch for changes.


Watch for changes to the requested object(s), without listing/getting first.

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


  # List all pods in ps output format.
  oc get pods
  # List a single replication controller with specified ID in ps output format.
  oc get rc redis
  # List all pods and show more details about them.
  oc get -o wide pods
  # List a single pod in JSON output format.
  oc get -o json pod redis-pod
  # Return only the status value of the specified pod.
  oc get -o template pod redis-pod --template={{.currentState.status}}
