odo logs on Podman

To continue improving the feature parity between Kubernetes and Podman, odo logs is now supported on the latter.

Similarly to how odo dev requires specifying the target platform (using the --platform flag), odo logs also requires specifying the platform to display the logs of a component running on Podman, like so:

ODO_EXPERIMENTAL_MODE=t odo logs --platform podman

As a reminder, Podman support in odo is still experimental and requires you to opt in if you want to try it out.

More details on forwarded ports in the output of odo describe component

odo describe component now additionally includes the following helpful information about forwarded ports:

  • the endpoint name, as defined in the Devfile
  • the endpoint exposure, as defined in the Devfile
  • whether the port is a debug endpoint or not. Note that this is based upon a naming convention: the endpoint name in the Devfile should be debug or be prefixed with debug- to be considered as a debug endpoint.
Example output:
Normal outputJSON output
$ odo describe component


Forwarded ports: -> cont:3000
Name: http-node -> cont:5858
Name: debug
Exposure: none
Debug: true -> cont2:5005
Name: debug-2
Exposure: internal
Debug: true
