openshift cli secrets new-dockercfg — Create a new dockercfg secret


openshift cli secrets new-dockercfg [Options]


Create a new dockercfg secret

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.

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.



Email for Docker registry


Password for Docker registry authentication

--docker-server=" ⟨"⟩

Server location for Docker registry


Username for Docker registry authentication


When using the default or custom-column output format, don't 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 [ ⟨⟩].


Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').

-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 [ ⟨⟩].

Options Inherited from Parent Commands


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


Username to impersonate for the operation


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
