kubectl create secret docker-registry

kubectl create secret docker-registry

Create a secret for use with a Docker registry

Synopsis

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.

kubectl create secret docker-registry NAME --docker-username=user --docker-password=password --docker-email=email [--docker-server=string] [--from-literal=key1=value1] [--dry-run]

Examples

  # 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

Options

      --docker-email string       Email for Docker registry
      --docker-password string    Password for Docker registry authentication
      --docker-server string      Server location for Docker registry (default "https://index.docker.io/v1/")
      --docker-username string    Username for Docker registry authentication
      --dry-run                   If true, only print the object that would be sent, without sending it.
      --generator string          The name of the API generator to use. (default "secret-for-docker-registry/v1")
      --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 [http://kubernetes.io/docs/user-guide/kubectl-overview/#custom-columns], golang template [http://golang.org/pkg/text/template/#pkg-overview] and jsonpath template [http://kubernetes.io/docs/user-guide/jsonpath].
      --output-version string     Output the formatted object with the given group version (for ex: 'extensions/v1beta1').
      --save-config               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 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. '{.metadata.name}'). 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 [http://golang.org/pkg/text/template/#pkg-overview].
      --validate                  If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it (default true)

      --as string                        Username to impersonate for the operation
      --certificate-authority string     Path to a cert. file for the certificate authority

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

      --log-backtrace-at traceLocation   when logging hits line file:N, emit a stack trace (default :0)
      --log-dir string                   If non-empty, write log files in this directory
      --logtostderr                      log to standard error instead of files

      --request-timeout string           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. (default "0")
