podman-attach - Man Page

Attach to a running container

Synopsis

podman attach [options] container

podman container attach [options] container

Description

The attach command allows you to attach to a running container using the container's ID or name, either to view its ongoing output or to control it interactively.

You can detach from the container (and leave it running) using a configurable key sequence. The default sequence is ctrl-p,ctrl-q. Configure the keys sequence using the --detach-keys option, or specifying it in the containers.conf file: see containers.conf(5) for more information.

Options

--detach-keys=sequence

Specify the key sequence for detaching a container. Format is a single character [a-Z] or one or more ctrl-<value> characters where <value> is one of: a-z, @, ^, [, , or _. Specifying "" will disable this feature. The default is ctrl-p,ctrl-q.

--latest, -l

Instead of providing the container name or ID, use the last created container. If you use methods other than Podman to run containers such as CRI-O, the last started container could be from either of those methods.

The latest option is not supported on the remote client.

--no-stdin

Do not attach STDIN. The default is false.

--sig-proxy=true|false

Proxy received signals to the process (non-TTY mode only). SIGCHLD, SIGSTOP, and SIGKILL are not proxied. The default is true.

Examples

$ podman attach foobar
[root@localhost /]#
$ podman attach --latest
[root@localhost /]#
$ podman attach 1234
[root@localhost /]#
$ podman attach --no-stdin foobar
