kubectl rolling-update

Perform a rolling update of the given ReplicationController


Perform a rolling update of the given ReplicationController.

Replaces the specified replication controller with a new replication controller by updating one pod at a time to use the new PodTemplate. The new-controller.json must specify the same namespace as the existing replication controller and overwrite at least one (common) label in its replicaSelector.




# Update pods of frontend-v1 using new replication controller data in frontend-v2.json.
kubectl rolling-update frontend-v1 -f frontend-v2.json

# Update pods of frontend-v1 using JSON data passed into stdin.
cat frontend-v2.json | kubectl rolling-update frontend-v1 -f -

# Update the pods of frontend-v1 to frontend-v2 by just changing the image, and switching the
# name of the replication controller.
kubectl rolling-update frontend-v1 frontend-v2 --image=image:v2

# Update the pods of frontend by just changing the image, and keeping the old name.
kubectl rolling-update frontend --image=image:v2

# Abort and reverse an existing rollout in progress (from frontend-v1 to frontend-v2).
kubectl rolling-update frontend-v1 frontend-v2 --rollback


      --container string              Container name which will have its image upgraded. Only relevant when --image is specified, ignored otherwise. Required when using --image on a multi-container pod
      --deployment-label-key string   The key to use to differentiate between two different controllers, default 'deployment'.  Only relevant when --image is specified, ignored otherwise (default "deployment")
      --dry-run                       If true, only print the object that would be sent, without sending it.
  -f, --filename value                Filename or URL to file to use to create the new replication controller. (default [])
      --image string                  Image to use for upgrading the replication controller. Must be distinct from the existing image (either new image or new image tag).  Can not be used with --filename/-f
      --image-pull-policy string      Explicit policy for when to pull container images. Required when --image is same as existing image, ignored otherwise.
      --include-extended-apis         If true, include definitions of new APIs via calls to the API server. [default true] (default true)
      --no-headers                    When using the default or custom-column output format, don't print headers.
  -o, --output string                 Output format. One of: json|yaml|wide|name|custom-columns=...|custom-columns-file=...|go-template=...|go-template-file=...|jsonpath=...|jsonpath-file=... See custom columns [], golang template [] and jsonpath template [].
      --output-version string         Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').
      --poll-interval duration        Time delay between polling for replication controller status after the update. Valid time units are "ns", "us" (or "µs"), "ms", "s", "m", "h". (default 3s)
      --rollback                      If true, this is a request to abort an existing rollout that is partially rolled out. It effectively reverses current and next and runs a rollout
      --schema-cache-dir string       If non-empty, load/store cached API schemas in this directory, default is '$HOME/.kube/schema' (default "~/.kube/schema")
  -a, --show-all                      When printing, show all resources (default hide terminated pods.)
      --show-labels                   When printing, show all labels as the last column (default hide labels column)
      --sort-by string                If non-empty, sort list types using this field specification.  The field specification is expressed as a JSONPath expression (e.g. '{}'). The field in the API resource specified by this JSONPath expression must be an integer or a string.
      --template string               Template string or path to template file to use when -o=go-template, -o=go-template-file. The template format is golang templates [].
      --timeout duration              Max time to wait for a replication controller to update before giving up. Valid time units are "ns", "us" (or "µs"), "ms", "s", "m", "h". (default 5m0s)
      --update-period duration        Time to wait between updating pods. Valid time units are "ns", "us" (or "µs"), "ms", "s", "m", "h". (default 1m0s)
      --validate                      If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it (default true)
