openshift cli login — Log in to a server

Synopsis

openshift cli login [Options]

Description

Log in to your server and save login for subsequent use

First-time users of the client should run this command to connect to a server, establish an authenticated session, and save connection to the configuration file. The default configuration will be saved to your home directory under ".kube/config".

The information required to login -- like username and password, a session token, or the server details -- can be provided through flags. If not provided, the command will prompt for user input as needed.

Options

-p, --password=""
Password, will prompt if not provided
-u, --username=""
Username, will prompt if not provided

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=""

--config=""

--context=""

--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.

# Log in interactively

# Log in to the given server with the given credentials (will not prompt interactively)
