openshift cli export — Export resources so they can be used elsewhere

Synopsis

openshift cli export [Options]

Description

Export resources so they can be used elsewhere

The export command makes it easy to take existing objects and convert them to configuration files for backups or for creating elsewhere in the cluster. Fields that cannot be specified on create will be set to empty, and any field which is assigned on creation (like a service's clusterIP, or a deployment config's latestVersion). The status part of objects is also cleared.

Some fields like clusterIP may be useful when exporting an application from one cluster to apply to another - assuming another service on the destination cluster does not already use that IP. The --exact flag will instruct export to not clear fields that might be useful. You may also use --raw to get the exact values for an object - useful for converting a file on disk between API versions.

Another use case for export is to create reusable templates for applications. Pass --as-template to generate the API structure for a template to which you can add parameters and object labels.

Options

--all=true
DEPRECATED: all is ignored, specifying a resource without a name selects all the instances of that resource
--all-namespaces=false
If present, list the requested object(s) across all namespaces. Namespace in current context is ignored even if specified with --namespace.
--as-template=""
Output a Template object with specified name instead of a List or single object.
--exact=false
Preserve fields that may be cluster specific, such as service portalIPs or generated names
-f, --filename=[]
Filename, directory, or URL to file for the resource to export.
--no-headers=false
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-version=""
Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').
--raw=false
If true, do not alter the resources in any way after they are loaded.
-l, --selector=""
Selector (label query) to filter on
-a, --show-all=true
When printing, show all resources (false means hide terminated pods.)
--show-labels=false
When printing, show all labels as the last column (default hide labels column)
--sort-by=""
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=""
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…⟩].

Options Inherited from Parent Commands

--api-version=""
DEPRECATED: The API version to use when talking to the server

--as=""
Username to impersonate for the operation.

--certificate-authority=""
Path to a cert. file for the certificate authority.

--client-certificate=""
Path to a client certificate file for TLS.

--client-key=""
Path to a client key file for TLS.

--cluster=""
The name of the kubeconfig cluster to use

--config=""
Path to the config file to use for CLI requests.

--context=""
The name of the kubeconfig context to use

--google-json-key=""
The Google Cloud Platform Service Account JSON Key to use for authentication.

--insecure-skip-tls-verify=false
If true, the server's certificate will not be checked for validity. This will make your HTTPS connections insecure.

--log-flush-frequency=0
Maximum number of seconds between log flushes

--match-server-version=false
Require server version to match client version

-n, --namespace=""
If present, the namespace scope for this CLI request.

--server=""
The address and port of the Kubernetes API server

--token=""
Bearer token for authentication to the API server.

--user=""
The name of the kubeconfig user to use

Example

# export the services and deployment configurations labeled name=test
openshift cli export svc,dc -l name=test

# export all services to a template
openshift cli export service --as-template=test

# export to JSON
