openshift kube create secret docker-registry — Create a secret for use with a Docker registry.


openshift kube create secret docker-registry [Options]


Create a new secret for use with Docker registries.

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=" ⟨https://index.docker.io/v1/"⟩
Server location for Docker registry
Username for Docker registry authentication
If true, only print the object that would be sent, without sending it.
The name of the API generator to use.
If true, include definitions of new APIs via calls to the API server. [default true]
When using the default output, don't print headers.
-o, --output=""
Output format. One of: json|yaml|wide|name|go-template=...|go-template-file=...|jsonpath=...|jsonpath-file=... See golang template [ ⟨http://golang.org/pkg/text/template/#pk…⟩] and jsonpath template [ ⟨http://releases.k8s.io/release-1.3/docs…⟩].
Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').
If true, the configuration of current object will be saved in its annotation. This is useful when you want to perform kubectl apply on this object in the future.
--schema-cache-dir=" /.kube/schema"
If non-empty, load/store cached API schemas in this directory, default is '$HOME/.kube/schema'
-a, --show-all=false
When printing, show all resources (default 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. '{.metadata.name}'). 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 [ ⟨http://golang.org/pkg/text/template/#pk…⟩].
If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it

Options Inherited from Parent Commands

log to standard error as well as files

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

Max number of application metrics to store (per container)

Username to impersonate for the operation.

Comma-separated list of files to check for boot-id. Use the first one that exists.

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.

location of the container hints file

The name of the kubeconfig context to use

docker endpoint

a comma-separated list of environment variable keys that needs to be collected for docker containers

Only report docker containers in addition to root stats

DEPRECATED: docker root is read from docker info (this is a fallback, default: /var/lib/docker)

Whether to enable cpu load reader

Max length of time for which to store events (per type). Value is a comma separated list of key values, where the keys are event types (e.g.: creation, oom) or "default" and the value is a duration. Default is applied to all non-specified event types

Max number of events to store (per type). Value is a comma separated list of key values, where the keys are event types (e.g.: creation, oom) or "default" and the value is an integer. Default is applied to all non-specified event types

Interval between global housekeepings

The Google Cloud Platform Service Account JSON Key to use for authentication.

Interval between container housekeepings

if non-empty, httptest.NewServer serves on this address and blocks

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

Data source used by InitialResources. Supported options: influxdb, gcm.

InfluxDB database name which contains metrics requred by InitialResources

Hawkular configuration URL

Address of InfluxDB which contains metrics requred by InitialResources

Whether the estimation should be made only based on data from the same namespace.

Password used for connecting to InfluxDB

Which percentile of samples should InitialResources use when estimating resources. For experiment purposes.

User used for connecting to InfluxDB

Specify a kubeconfig file to define the configuration

when logging hits line file:N, emit a stack trace

Whether to log the usage of the cAdvisor container

If non-empty, write log files in this directory

Maximum number of seconds between log flushes

log to standard error instead of files

Comma-separated list of files to check for machine-id. Use the first one that exists.

Require server version to match client version

-n, --namespace=""
If present, the namespace scope for this CLI request.

The address and port of the Kubernetes API server

logs at or above this threshold go to stderr

Writes in the storage driver will be buffered for this duration, and committed to the non memory backends as a single transaction

database name

database host:port

database password

use secure connection with database

table name

database username

Bearer token for authentication to the API server.

The name of the kubeconfig user to use

-v, --v=0
log level for V logs

comma-separated list of pattern=N settings for file-filtered logging


# If you don't already have a .dockercfg file, you can create a dockercfg secret directly by using:
kubectl create secret docker-registry my-secret --docker-server=DOCKER_REGISTRY_SERVER --docker-username=DOCKER_USER --docker-password=DOCKER_PASSWORD --docker-email=DOCKER_EMAIL
