Streaming content in binary format from a local file system to the builder is
Binary type build. The corresponding value of
Binary for such builds.
This source type is unique in that it is leveraged solely based on your use of
Binary type builds require content to be streamed from the local file system, so
automatically triggering a binary type build (e.g. via an image change trigger)
is not possible, because the binary files cannot be provided. Similarly, you
cannot launch binary type builds from the web console.
To utilize binary builds, invoke
oc start-build with one of these options:
--from-file: The contents of the file you specify are sent as a binary stream
to the builder. You can also specify a URL to a file. Then, the builder stores
the data in a file with the same name at the top of the build context.
--from-repo: The contents are archived and sent as a binary
stream to the builder. Then, the builder extracts the contents of the archive
within the build context directory. With
--from-dir, you can also specify
a URL to an archive, which will be extracted.
--from-archive: The archive you specify is sent to the builder, where it is
extracted within the build context directory. This option
behaves the same as
--from-dir; an archive is created on your host first,
whenever the argument to these options is a directory.
In each of the above cases:
BuildConfig already has a
Binary source type defined, it will
effectively be ignored and replaced by what the client sends.
BuildConfig has a
Git source type defined, it is dynamically
Git are mutually exclusive, and the data in
the binary stream provided to the builder takes precedence.
Instead of a file name, you can pass a URL with HTTP or HTTPS schema to
--from-archive. When using
--from-file with a URL, the
name of the file in the builder image is determined by the
header sent by the web server, or the last component of the URL path if the
header is not present. No form of authentication is supported and it is not
possible to use custom TLS certificate or disable certificate validation.
oc new-build --binary=true, the command ensures that the
restrictions associated with binary builds are enforced. The resulting
BuildConfig will have a source type of
Binary, meaning that the only
valid way to run a build for this
BuildConfig is to use
start-build with one of the
--from options to provide the requisite binary
In the case of the binary stream encapsulating extracted archive content, the
value of the
contextDir field is interpreted as a subdirectory within the
archive, and, if valid, the builder changes into that subdirectory before
executing the build.
