Use special characters to generate strings for templates parameters in OpenShift

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • Some fields may require special characters for random generation, like passwords with strict requirements
  • Documentation mentions only the next modifiers:
    • \w, to produce alphabet characters, numbers, and underscores
    • \d, to produce numbers
    • \a, to produce alphabetical characters
  • There's no way to include non-alphabetical characters for random generation
