Shipa Target Management

Targets are used to manage the addresses of the remote Shipa servers.

Each target is identified by a label and a HTTP/HTTPS address. Shipa's client requires at least one target to connect to, there's no default target. A user may have multiple targets, but only one will be used at a time.


Shipa Target Address

In order to find the target address for your Shipa instance, the command below can be executed in the cluster where Shipa was installed:

kubectl --namespace=shipa-system get svc shipa-ingress-nginx -o jsonpath="{.status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip}"

The command above will output the IP that should be used as the target on the steps below

Adding Targets

$ shipa target-add <label> <target> [--set-current|-s]

The command above adds a new entry to the list of available targets


Target Label

Please note that the label flag used in the command above can be any name chosen by the user and not necessarily any label or name tied to the Shipa instance when created.

Its also important to notice that a user can have multiple Shipa targets configured in their machine, so labels can be used by the user to distinguish between the different Shipa targets


-s, --set-current

(= false) Add and define the target as the current target

Listing Targets

$ shipa target-list

Displays the list of targets available and added to Shipa's client, marking the current one.

Additional available commands related to target:

  • target-add: adds a new target to the list of targets
  • target-set: defines one of the targets in the list as the current target
  • target-remove: removes one target from the list

Setting Target

$ shipa target-set <label>

The command above changes the current target set for the Shipa client/server.

Removing Targets

$ shipa target-remove

The command above removes a target set in the Shipa server.
