odo list

odo list command is useful for getting information about components running on a specific namespace.

If the command is executed from a directory containing a Devfile, it also displays the command defined in the Devfile as part of the list, prefixed with a star(*).

For each component, the command displays:

  • its name,
  • its project type,
  • on which mode it is running (None, Dev, Deploy, or both), not that None is only applicable to the component defined in the local Devfile,
  • by which application the component has been deployed.

Available flags

  • --namespace - Namespace to list the components from (optional). By default, the current namespace defined in kubeconfig is used
  • -o json - Outputs the list in JSON format. See JSON output for more information
use of cache

odo list makes use of cache for performance reasons. This is the same cache that is referred by kubectl command when you do kubectl api-resources --cached=true. As a result, if you were to install an Operator/CRD on the Kubernetes cluster, and create a resource from it using odo, you might not see it in the odo list output. This would be the case for 10 minutes timeframe for which the cache is considered valid. Beyond this 10 minutes, the cache is updated anyway.

If you would like to invalidate the cache before the 10 minutes timeframe, you could manually delete it by doing:

rm -rf ~/.kube/cache/discovery/api.crc.testing_6443/

Above example shows how to invalidate the cache for a CRC cluster. Note that you will have to modify the api.crc. testing_6443 part based on the cluster you are working against.
