oc import docker-compose — Import a docker-compose.yml project into OpenShift (experimental)


oc import docker-compose [Options]


Import a Docker Compose file as OpenShift objects

Docker Compose files offer a container centric build and deploy pattern for simple applications. This command will transform a provided docker-compose.yml application into its OpenShift equivalent. During transformation fields in the compose syntax that are not relevant when running on top of a containerized platform will be ignored and a warning printed.

The command will create objects unless you pass the -o yaml or --as-template flags to generate a configuration file for later use.

Experimental: This command is under active development and may change without notice.


If set, generate a template with the provided name
If true, show the result of the operation without performing it.
-f, --filename=[]
Filename, directory, or URL to docker-compose.yml file to use
The name of the API generator to use.
-o, --output=""
Output results as yaml or json instead of executing, or use name for succint output (resource/name).
The preferred API versions of the output objects
