oc secrets new-basicauth — Create a new secret for basic authentication


oc secrets new-basicauth [Options]


Create a new basic authentication secret

Basic authentication secrets are used to authenticate against SCM servers.

When creating applications, you may have a SCM server that requires basic authentication - username, password. In order for the nodes to clone source code on your behalf, they have to have the credentials. You can provide this information by creating a 'basicauth' secret and attaching it to your service account.



Path to a certificate file


Path to a .gitconfig file


When using the default or custom-column output format, don't 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⟩].


Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').


Password or token for Git authentication


Prompt for password or token

-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/#pkg-overview⟩].


Username for Git authentication

Options Inherited from Parent Commands


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


Username to impersonate for the operation


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


  # If your basic authentication method requires only username and password or token, add it by using:
  oc secrets new-basicauth SECRET --username=USERNAME --password=PASSWORD
  # If your basic authentication method requires also CA certificate, add it by using:
  oc secrets new-basicauth SECRET --username=USERNAME --password=PASSWORD --ca-cert=FILENAME
  # If you do already have a .gitconfig file needed for authentication, you can create a gitconfig secret by using:
  oc secrets new SECRET path/to/.gitconfig
