Kill a Kubernetes namespace/OpenShift project which is stuck in the state of "Terminating".

Also see: kubernetes/kubernetes#60807

This scripts automates the steps suggestes by some people on the comments of the issue.

Note: Use at your own risk! It works for me though.


./kill-kube-ns myproject

Note: You will need to be logged in to your cluster, and have the necessary permissions.


Your will need to have the following things installed:

  • bash
  • curl
  • jq
  • kubectl
You can’t perform that action at this time.
