openshift cli create secret docker-registry — Create a secret for use with a Docker registry


openshift cli create secret docker-registry [Options]


Create a new secret for use with Docker registries.

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. The email address is optional.

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.



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.


Email for Docker registry


Password for Docker registry authentication

--docker-server=" ⟨"⟩

Server location for Docker registry


Username for Docker registry authentication


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


The name of the API generator to use.


If true, include definitions of new APIs via calls to the API server. [default true]


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 [ ⟨⟩], golang template [ ⟨⟩] and jsonpath template [ ⟨⟩].


If true, the configuration of current object will be saved in its annotation. Otherwise, the annotation will be unchanged. This flag is useful when you want to perform kubectl apply on this object in the future.

--schema-cache-dir=" /.kube/schema"

If non-empty, load/store cached API schemas in this directory, default is '$HOME/.kube/schema'

-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. '{}'). 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 [ ⟨⟩].


If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it

Options Inherited from Parent Commands


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


Username to impersonate for the operation


Path to the file container Azure container registry configuration information.


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 you don't already have a .dockercfg file, you can create a dockercfg secret directly by using:
  openshift cli create secret docker-registry my-secret --docker-server=DOCKER_REGISTRY_SERVER --docker-username=DOCKER_USER --docker-password=DOCKER_PASSWORD --docker-email=DOCKER_EMAIL
