Using Skupper with OpenShift

Prerequisites

Note: The oc command is a kubectl equivalent with extensions for OpenShift. The Skupper getting started guide uses kubectl for the core Kubernetes operations, but you can safely use oc instead. For example, kubectl create namespace west and oc create namespace west have the same effect.

Logging in

Logging in using the command line

Use the oc login command with the URL of your OpenShift cluster and your username.

oc login openshift.example.net:6443 -u alice

The command will prompt you for any needed credentials or login details.

See the instructions for logging in for more information.

Logging in using the console

You can also use the OpenShift console to generate an oc login command that you can paste into your console session.

  1. Navigate to the OpenShift console and log in.
  2. Select the menu for your account in the top right of the page.
  3. Select Copy Login Command. Follow the prompts until you have an oc login command to copy.
  4. Paste the oc login command into your console session.
