openshift cli adm certificate approve ā€” Approve a certificate signing request


openshift cli adm certificate approve [Options]


Approve a certificate signing request.

kubectl certificate approve allows a cluster admin to approve a certificate signing request (CSR). This action tells a certificate signing controller to issue a certificate to the requestor with the attributes requested in the CSR.

SECURITY NOTICE: Depending on the requested attributes, the issued certificate can potentially grant a requester access to cluster resources or to authenticate as a requested identity. Before approving a CSR, ensure you understand what the signed certificate can do.


-f, --filename=[]

Filename, directory, or URL to files identifying the resource to update

-o, --output=""

Output mode. Use "-o name" for shorter output (resource/name).

-R, --recursive=false

Process the directory used in -f, --filename recursively. Useful when you want to manage related manifests organized within the same directory.
