Let's say that we want to create a container that needs be fed with environmental variables when started (such as mysql). How we are going to know beforehand the environment variables using ONLY the CLI?
podman inspect or skopeo inspect do not provide detailed info on the env. vars that are available for a specific image.
Thanks a lot! But it seems that usage states only an example, and not the whole list of the environmental variables supported by the image.
If you do a podman run and don't specify environment variables, you might get what you want. This method may not work for everthing. For mariadb, it returns this:
I do try the previous answers but sometimes no info is visible in skopeo or when starting the container.
As a workaround I also try openshift: If a template is available it can provide the list of env parameters oc new-app (oc process templatename --parameters). Of course this works only if there is an available template...
I haven't found a generic solution to to this
