openshift kube create secret generic — Create a secret from a local file, directory or literal value.

Synopsis

openshift kube create secret generic [Options]

Description

Create a secret based on a file, directory, or specified literal value.

A single secret may package one or more key/value pairs.

When creating a secret based on a file, the key will default to the basename of the file, and the value will default to the file content. If the basename is an invalid key, you may specify an alternate key.

When creating a secret based on a directory, each file whose basename is a valid key in the directory will be packaged into the secret. Any directory entries except regular files are ignored (e.g. subdirectories, symlinks, devices, pipes, etc).

Options

--dry-run=false
If true, only print the object that would be sent, without sending it.
--from-file=[]
Key files can be specified using their file path, in which case a default name will be given to them, or optionally with a name and file path, in which case the given name will be used. Specifying a directory will iterate each named file in the directory that is a valid secret key.
--from-literal=[]
Specify a key and literal value to insert in secret (i.e. mykey=somevalue)
--generator="secret/v1"
The name of the API generator to use.
--no-headers=false
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-version=""
Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').
--save-config=false
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.)
--show-labels=false
When printing, show all labels as the last column (default hide labels column)
--sort-by=""
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=""
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…⟩].
--type=""
The type of secret to create
--validate=true
If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it
