openshift cli process — Process a template into list of resources


openshift cli process [Options]


Process template into a list of resources specified in filename or stdin

Templates allow parameterization of resources prior to being sent to the server for creation or update. Templates have "parameters", which may either be generated on creation or set by the user, as well as metadata describing the template.

The output of the process command is always a list of one or more resources. You may pipe the output to the create command over STDIN (using the '-f -' option) or redirect it to a file.


-f, --filename=""
Filename or URL to file to read a template
-l, --labels=""
Label to set in all resources for this template
-o, --output="json"
Output format. One of: describe|json|yaml|name|template|templatefile.
Output the formatted object with the given version (default api-version).
Do not process but only print available parameters
If true output the processed template instead of the template's objects. Implied by -o describe
-t, --template=""
Template string or path to template file to use when -o=template or -o=templatefile. The template format is golang templates [ ⟨…⟩]
-v, --value=[]
Specify a list of key-value pairs (eg. -v FOO=BAR,BAR=FOO) to set/override parameter values
