porter credentials generate

Generate Credential Set


Generate a named set of credentials.

The first argument is the name of credential set you wish to generate. If not provided, this will default to the bundle name. By default, Porter will generate a credential set for the bundle in the current directory. You may also specify a bundle with –file.

Bundles define 1 or more credential(s) that are required to interact with a bundle. The bundle definition defines where the credential should be delivered to the bundle, i.e. at /root/.kube. A credential set, on the other hand, represents the source data that you wish to use when interacting with the bundle. These will typically be environment variables or files on your local file system.

When you wish to install, upgrade or delete a bundle, Porter will use the credential set to determine where to read the necessary information from and will then provide it to the bundle in the correct location.
