Enabling tab completion

After you install the oc CLI tool, you can enable tab completion to automatically complete oc commands or suggest options when you press Tab.

  • You must have the oc CLI tool installed.


The following procedure enables tab completion for Bash.

  1. Save the Bash completion code to a file.

    $ oc completion bash > oc_bash_completion
  2. Copy the file to /etc/bash_completion.d/.

    $ sudo cp oc_bash_completion /etc/bash_completion.d/

    You can also save the file to a local directory and source it from your .bashrc file instead.

Tab completion is enabled when you open a new terminal.
