openshift infra f5-router — Start an F5 route synchronizer


openshift infra f5-router [Options]


Start an F5 route synchronizer

This command launches a process that will synchronize an F5 to the route configuration of your master.

You may restrict the set of routes exposed to a single project (with --namespace), projects your client has access to with a set of labels (--project-labels), namespaces matching a label (--namespace-labels), or all namespaces (no argument). You can limit the routes to those matching a --labels or --fields selector. Note that you must have a cluster-wide administrative role to view all namespaces.



Allow wildcard host names for routes


List of comma separated domains to allow in routes. If specified, only the domains in this list will be allowed routes. Note that domains in the denied list take precedence over the ones in the allowed list


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


List of comma separated domains to deny in routes


Disables the namespace ownership checks for a route host with different paths or for overlapping host names in the case of wildcard routes. Please be aware that if namespace ownership checks are disabled, routes in a different namespace can use this mechanism to 'steal' sub-paths for existing domains. This is only safe if route creation privileges are restricted, or if all the users can be trusted.


Enable configuration via ingress resources


The host of F5 BIG-IP's management interface


The F5 BIG-IP virtual server for HTTP connections


The F5 BIG-IP virtual server for HTTPS connections


Skip strict certificate verification


The F5 BIG-IP internal interface's IP address


The F5 BIG-IP partition path to use


The password for F5 BIG-IP's management utility


The path to the F5 BIG-IP SSH private key file


The username for F5 BIG-IP's management utility

A field selector to apply to routes to watch


If specified, a template that should be used to generate the hostname for a route without (e.g. '${name}-${namespace}')


If true, UDP endpoints will be considered as candidates for routing


If true, the server's certificate will not be checked for validity. This will make your HTTPS connections insecure

--kubernetes=" ⟨http://localhost:8080"⟩

The address of the Kubernetes server (host, host:port, or URL). If omitted defaults to the master.


A label selector to apply to the routes to watch


The name of an interface to listen on to expose metrics and health checking. If not specified, will not listen. Overrides stats port.

--master=" ⟨http://localhost:8080"⟩

The address the master can be reached on (host, host:port, or URL).


The name the router will identify itself with in the route status

-n, --namespace=""

If present, the namespace scope for this CLI request


A label selector to apply to namespaces to watch


Override the value for a route with --hostname-template


A label selector to apply to projects to watch; if '*' watches all projects the client can access


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 interval at which the route list should be fully refreshed


The address and port of the Kubernetes API server


Bearer token for authentication to the API server
