cmctl

A CLI tool that can help you to manage cert-manager resources inside your cluster. Check cert signing status, approve/deny requests, and issue new certificate requests. More information: https://cert-manager.io/docs/usage/cmctl/.

  • Check if the cert-manager API is ready:

cmctl check api

  • Check the status of a certificate:

cmctl status certificate {{cert_name}}

  • Create a new certificate request based on an existing certificate:

cmctl create certificaterequest my-cr --from-certificate-file {{cert.yaml}}

  • Create a new certificate request, fetch the signed certificate, and set a maximum wait time:

cmctl create certificaterequest my-cr --from-certificate-file {{cert.yaml}} --fetch-certificate --timeout {{20m}}
