ocm describe artifacts [<options>] {<artifact-reference>}


  -h, --help            help for artifacts
      --layerfiles      list layer files
  -o, --output string   output mode (JSON, json, yaml)
      --repo string     repository name or spec


Describe lists all artifact versions specified, if only a repository is specified all tagged artifacts are listed. Per version a detailed, potentially recursive description is printed.

If the repository/registry option is specified, the given names are interpreted relative to the specified registry using the syntax

<OCI repository name>[:<tag>][@<digest>]

If no –repo option is specified the given names are interpreted as extended OCI artifact references.

[<repo type>::]<host>[:<port>]/<OCI repository name>[:<tag>][@<digest>]

The –repo option takes a repository/OCI registry specification:

[<repo type>::]<configured name>|<file path>|<spec json>

For the Common Transport Format the types directory, tar or tgz are possible.

Using the JSON variant any repository types supported by the linked library can be used:

  • ArtifactSet: v1
  • CommonTransportFormat: v1
  • DockerDaemon: v1
  • Empty: v1
  • OCIRegistry: v1
  • oci: v1
  • ociRegistry

With the option –output the output mode can be selected. The following modes are supported:

  • (default)
  • JSON
  • json
  • yaml


$ ocm describe artifact
$ ocm describe artifact --repo mandelsoft/kubelink
