oc secrets new-dockercfg — Create a new dockercfg secret


oc secrets new-dockercfg [Options]


Create a new dockercfg secret

Dockercfg secrets are used to authenticate against Docker registries.

When using the Docker command line to push images, you can authenticate to a given registry by running
'docker login DOCKER_REGISTRY_SERVER --username=DOCKER_USER --password=DOCKER_PASSWORD --email=DOCKER_EMAIL'. That produces a  /.dockercfg file that is used by subsequent 'docker push' and 'docker pull' commands to authenticate to the registry.

When creating applications, you may have a Docker registry that requires authentication. In order for the nodes to pull images on your behalf, they have to have the credentials. You can provide this information by creating a dockercfg secret and attaching it to your service account.


Email for Docker registry
Password for Docker registry authentication
--docker-server=" ⟨https://index.docker.io/v1/"⟩
Server location for Docker registry
Username for Docker registry authentication
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…⟩].
