openshift admin migrate image-references — Update embedded Docker image references


openshift admin migrate image-references [Options]


Migrate references to Docker images

This command updates embedded Docker image references on the server in place. By default it will update image streams and images, and may be used to update resources with a pod template (deployments, replication controllers, daemon sets).

References are changed by providing a mapping between a source registry and name and the desired registry and name. Either name or registry can be set to '*' to change all values. The registry value "docker.io" is special and will handle any image reference that refers to the DockerHub. You may pass multiple mappings - the first matching mapping will be applied per resource.

The following resource types may be migrated by this command:

· images * daemonsets

· imagestreams * jobs

· buildconfigs * replicationcontrollers

· deploymentconfigs * pods

· secrets (docker)

Only images, imagestreams, and secrets are updated by default. Updating images and image streams requires administrative privileges.


Migrate objects in all namespaces. Defaults to true.
If true, all requested objects will be migrated. Defaults to false.
-f, --filename=[]
Filename, directory, or URL to docker-compose.yml file to use
If specified, only migrate items with a key (namespace/name or name) greater than or equal to this value
Resource types to migrate. Passing --filename will override this flag.
-o, --output=""
Output the modified objects instead of saving them, valid values are 'yaml' or 'json'
If specified, only migrate items with a key (namespace/name or name) less than this value
