openshift cli serviceaccounts new-token ā€” Generate a new token for a service account.


openshift cli serviceaccounts new-token [Options]


Generate a new token for a service account.

Service account API tokens are used by service accounts to authenticate to the API. This command will generate a new token, which could be used to compartmentalize service account actions by executing them with distinct tokens, to rotate out pre-existing token on the service account, or for use by an external client. If a label is provided, it will be applied to any created token so that tokens created with this command can be idenitifed.
