kf create-user-provided-service

Name

kf create-user-provided-service - Create a standalone service instance from existing credentials.

Synopsis

kf create-user-provided-service SERVICE_INSTANCE [-p CREDENTIALS] [-t TAGS] [flags]

Description

Creates a standalone service instance from existing credentials. User-provided services can be used to inject credentials for services managed outside of Kf into Apps.

Credentials are stored in a Kubernetes Secret in the Space the service is created in. On GKE these Secrets are encrypted at rest and can optionally be encrypted using KMS.

Examples

  # Bring an existing database service
  kf create-user-provided-service db-service -p '{"url":"mysql://..."}'
  
  # Create a service with tags for autowiring
  kf create-user-provided-service db-service -t "mysql,database,sql"
