Description zhou ying 2019-01-30 03:11:07 UTC
Description of problem:
The new mechanism for oc plugin of git-style does not work

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
oc v4.0.0-0.149.0
kubernetes v1.12.4+50c2f2340a

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the latest OC  and kubectl client;
2. Create the plugin :
   `echo -e '#!/bin/bash\n echo "Plugin oc-foo_bar is executed"' > ./oc-foo_bar`
   `chmod +x oc-foo_bar`
   `mv oc-foo_bar /usr/local/bin/`
3. Use `oc plugin list` command to list the plugin
4. Change the plugin name to 'kubectl-foo_bar' , use the 'oc plugin list' command
5. Use `oc plugin -h` command to check the help info.

Actual results:
3. Could not find the oc plugin:
[root@dhcp-140-138 ~]# oc plugin list
error: unable to find any kubectl plugins in your PATH

4. Show the kubectl-compatible plugins are available, but could not use the plugin
5. The help info was not clear

Expected results:
3. Should find the oc plugin;
4. Only the kubectl could use the plugin , the oc client could not use the kubectl-compatible plugin.
5. Should give clear documentation and examples for how to write the plugin.

Comment 6 zhou ying 2019-02-14 02:53:02 UTC
The new mechanism works fine now:
[root@dhcp-140-138 ~]# oc plugin list
The following compatible plugins are available:

[root@dhcp-140-138 ~]# oc foo
I am a plugin named foo
[root@dhcp-140-138 ~]# oc foo-bar
Plugin oc-foo-bar is executed
[root@dhcp-140-138 ~]# oc version
oc v4.0.0-0.170.0
kubernetes v1.12.4+45dbe929fa
