Sally sync with Clayton, I'm not sure if we still care about this command.

Comment 2 Sally 2020-05-20 17:48:54 UTC
Iā€™m adding UpcomingSprint, because I was occupied by fixing bugs with higher priority/severity, developing new features with higher priority, or developing new features to improve stability at a macro level. I will revisit this bug next sprint.

Comment 3 Sally 2020-06-16 14:13:57 UTC
We're moving to deprecate `oc adm create-kubeconfig` command.  We'll be pointing users to `oc config set...` equivalent in the near future. 
Moving version to 4.6 for this bug, no plans to backport.

Comment 7 zhou ying 2020-06-19 09:45:41 UTC
[root@dhcp-140-138 ~]# oc version --client

[root@dhcp-140-138 ~]# oc adm create-kubeconfig --master='https://api.xxxx.openshift.com:6443' 
Command "create-kubeconfig" is deprecated, and will be removed in the future version
error: client-certificate must be provided
