To run odo in a disconnected OpenShift Container Platform cluster or a cluster provisioned in a restricted environment, you must ensure that a cluster administrator has created a cluster with a mirrored registry.

To start working in a disconnected cluster, you must first push the odo init image to the registry of the cluster and then overwrite the odo init image path using the ODO_BOOTSTRAPPER_IMAGE environment variable.

After you push the odo init image, you must mirror a supported builder image from the registry, overwrite a mirror registry and then create your application. A builder image is necessary to configure a runtime environment for your application and also contains the build tool needed to build your application, for example npm for Node.js or Maven for Java. A mirror registry contains all the necessary dependencies for your application.
