oc set triggers — Update the triggers on one or more objects


oc set triggers [Options]


Set or remove triggers

Build configs, deployment configs, and most Kubernetes workload objects may have a set of triggers that result in a new deployment or build being created when an image changes. This command enables you to alter those triggers - making them automatic or manual, adding new entries, or changing existing entries.

Deployments support triggering off of image changes and on config changes. Config changes are any alterations to the pod template, while image changes will result in the container image value being updated whenever an image stream tag is updated. You may also trigger Kubernetes stateful sets, daemon sets, deployments, and cron jobs from images. Disabling the config change trigger is equivalent to pausing most objects. Deployment configs will not perform their first deployment until all image change triggers have been submitted.

Build configs support triggering off of image changes, config changes, and webhooks. The config change trigger for a build config will only trigger the first build.



If true, select all resources in the namespace of the specified resource types


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, enable all triggers, or just the specified trigger

-c, --containers=""

Comma delimited list of container names this trigger applies to on deployments; defaults to the name of the only container


If true, only print the object that would be sent, without sending it.

-f, --filename=[]

Filename, directory, or URL to file to use to edit the resource.


If true, a Bitbucket webhook - a secret value will be generated automatically


If set, configuration changes will result in a change


If true, a GitHub webhook - a secret value will be generated automatically


If true, a GitLab webhook - a secret value will be generated automatically


An image stream tag to trigger off of


If true, a generic webhook - a secret value will be generated automatically


If true, a generic webhook which can provide environment variables - a secret value will be generated automatically


If true, set image will NOT contact api-server but run locally.


If true, set all triggers to manual, or just the specified trigger


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⟩].


If true, remove the specified trigger(s).


If true, remove all triggers.

-l, --selector=""

Selector (label query) to filter on

-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⟩].

Options Inherited from Parent Commands


Username to impersonate for the operation


Group to impersonate for the operation, this flag can be repeated to specify multiple groups.


Path to the file container Azure container registry configuration information.


Default HTTP cache directory


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


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
