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 or you wish to chose your own, 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).

Syntax

werf kubectl create secret generic NAME [--type=string] [--from-file=[key=]source] [--from-literal=key1=value1] [--dry-run=server|client|none] [options]

Examples

  # Create a new secret named my-secret with keys for each file in folder bar
  kubectl create secret generic my-secret --from-file=path/to/bar
  
  # Create a new secret named my-secret with specified keys instead of names on disk
  kubectl create secret generic my-secret --from-file=ssh-privatekey=path/to/id_rsa --from-file=ssh-publickey=path/to/id_rsa.pub
  
  # Create a new secret named my-secret with key1=supersecret and key2=topsecret
  kubectl create secret generic my-secret --from-literal=key1=supersecret --from-literal=key2=topsecret
  
  # Create a new secret named my-secret using a combination of a file and a literal
  kubectl create secret generic my-secret --from-file=ssh-privatekey=path/to/id_rsa --from-literal=passphrase=topsecret
  
  # Create a new secret named my-secret from env files
  kubectl create secret generic my-secret --from-env-file=path/to/foo.env --from-env-file=path/to/bar.env

Options

      --allow-missing-template-keys=true
            If true, ignore any errors in templates when a field or map key is missing in the       
            template. Only applies to golang and jsonpath output formats.
      --append-hash=false
            Append a hash of the secret to its name.
      --dry-run='none'
            Must be "none", "server", or "client". If client strategy, only print the object that   
            would be sent, without sending it. If server strategy, submit server-side request       
            without persisting the resource.
      --field-manager='kubectl-create'
            Name of the manager used to track field ownership.
      --from-env-file=[]
            Specify the path to a file to read lines of key=val pairs to create a secret (i.e. a    
            Docker .env file).
      --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)
  -o, --output=''
            Output format. One of: json|yaml|name|go-template|go-template-file|template|templatefile
            |jsonpath|jsonpath-as-json|jsonpath-file.
      --save-config=false
            If true, the configuration of current object will be saved in its annotation.           
            Otherwise, the annotation will be unchanged. This flag is useful when you want to       
            perform kubectl apply on this object in the future.
      --show-managed-fields=false
            If true, keep the managedFields when printing objects in JSON or YAML format.
      --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/#pkg-overview].
      --type=''
            The type of secret to create
      --validate=true
            If true, use a schema to validate the input before sending it
