openshift cli import app.json — Import an app.json definition into OpenShift (experimental)

Synopsis

openshift cli import app.json [Options]

Description

Import app.json files as OpenShift objects

app.json defines the pattern of a simple, stateless web application that can be horizontally scaled. This command will transform a provided app.json object into its OpenShift equivalent. During transformation fields in the app.json syntax that are not relevant when running on top of a containerized platform will be ignored and a warning printed.

The command will create objects unless you pass the -o yaml or --as-template flags to generate a configuration file for later use.

Experimental: This command is under active development and may change without notice.

--as-template=""
If set, generate a template with the provided name
--dry-run=false
If true, show the result of the operation without performing it.
-f, --filename=[]
Filename, directory, or URL to app.json file to use
--generator="app-json/v1"
The name of the generator strategy to use - specify this value to for backwards compatibility.
--image=""
An optional image to use as your base Docker build (must have ONBUILD directives)
-o, --output=""
