- Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.4
- Red Hat OpenShift Linux Client (oc) v22.214.171.124.21
- Bash completion for oc command does not work. Pressing tab key after
ocdoes not show openshift client command parameters.
When deploying the Openshift Linux client from tar.gz archive, user should manually generate the completion script for bash with the following command:
# oc completion bash >>/etc/bash_completion.d/oc_completion
The output file can be saved in user local directory and sourced from ~/.bashrc file as well.
OpenShift Linux Client
/usr/bin/oc can be installed from
atomic-openshift-clients.rpm package or simply extracted from tar.gz archive to any user directory.
The package version contains manual pages and bash completion script which is installed in default location:
/etc/bash_completion.d/oc while only a single executable file is available in the archive version.
With autocompletion enabled the shell presents oc supported commands:
# oc adm completion describe get new-app process rsync tag annotate config edit idle new-build project run types apply convert env import new-project projects scale version attach cp exec import-image observe proxy secrets volumes auth create explain label options replace serviceaccounts whoami autoscale debug export login patch rollback set cancel-build delete expose logout policy rollout start-build cluster deploy extract logs port-forward rsh status
