Container shell access

Debug an app hosted on Kubernetes by opening a shell to its container

Opening a Shell

When viewing a workload, click on the ... button (or right click) on any pod, and then click Open Shell to open a new shell session with a pod's container. If there are many containers, Infra App will show a list of containers to choose from.

Once connected, this session will persist until you close it or change clusters in Infra App.

To close the shell, simply click on the X button in the top right of the terminal view.

Not all containers can open a shell

Not all containers include files required to open shell access. You may receive an error such as OCI runtime exec failed: exec failed.
