Example Playbook


Currently we use oc create -f against various files and we accept non zero return code as a success if (and only if) stderr also contains the string 'already exists'. This means that if one object in the file exists already but others fail to create you won't be aware of the failure. This also means that we do not currently support updating existing objects.

We should add the ability to compare existing image streams against those we're being asked to load and update if necessary.
