oc create secret generic mb-image-pull-secret --from-file=.dockerconfigjson=[DIR-PATH-TO-AUTH-JSON]/auth.json --type=kubernetes.io/dockerconfigjson -n mockingbird
  • Using kubectl create SSL cert secret with CERT_PRIVATE_KEY_FILE and CERT_FILE replaced with path values.
kubectl create secret tls mb-ssl-secret --key ${CERT_PRIVATE_KEY_FILE} --cert ${CERT_FILE} -n mockingbird

oc create secret tls mb-ssl-secret --key ${CERT_PRIVATE_KEY_FILE} --cert ${CERT_FILE} -n mockingbird
