NAME

       umoci insert - insert content into an OCI image

SYNOPSIS

       umoci insert --image=image[:tag] [--tag=new-tag] [--opaque] [--rootless] [--uid-map=value]
       [--uid-map=value] [--no-history] [--history.comment=comment]
       [--history.created_by=created_by] [--history.author=author] [--history-created=date]
       source target

       umoci insert [options] --whiteout target

DESCRIPTION

       In the first form, insert the contents of source into the OCI image given by --image --
       overwriting it unless you specify --tag. This is done by creating a new layer containing
       just the contents of source with a name of target. source can be either a file or
       directory, and in the latter case it will be recursed. If --opaque is specified then any
       paths below target in the previous image layers (assuming target is a directory) will be
       removed.

       In the second form, inserts a "deletion entry" into the OCI image for target inside the
       image. This is done by inserting a layer containing just a whiteout entry for the given
       path.

       Note that this command works by creating a new layer, so this should not be used to remove
       (or replace) secrets from an already-built image. See umoci-config(1) and --config.volume
       for how to achieve this correctly by not creating image layers with secrets in the first
       place.

       If --no-history was not specified, a history entry is appended to the tagged OCI image for
       this change (with the various --history. flags controlling the values used). To view the
       history, see umoci-stat(1).

OPTIONS

       The global options are defined in umoci(1).

       --image=image[:tag]
         The source and destination tag for the insertion of file at path inside
         the container image. image must be a path to a valid OCI image and tag
         must be a valid tag in the image. If tag is not provided it defaults to
         "latest".

       --tag=new-tag
         Tag name for the modified image, if unspecified then the original tag
         provided to --image will be clobbered.

       --opaque
         (Assuming target is a directory.) Add an opaque whiteout entry for target
         so that any child path of target in previous layers is masked by the new
         entry for target, which will just contain the contents of source. This
         allows for the complete replacement of a directory, as opposed to the merging
         of directory entries.

       --whiteout
         Add a deletion entry for target, so that it is not present in future
         extractions of the image.

       --rootless
         Enable rootless insertion support. This allows for umoci-insert(1) to be
         used as an unprivileged user. Use of this flag implies --uid-map=0:$(id
         -u):1 and --gid-map=0:$(id -g):1, as well as enabling several features
         to fake parts of the recursion process in an attempt to generate an
         as-close-as-possible clone of the filesystem for insertion.

       --uid-map=value
         Specifies a UID mapping to use when inserting files. This is used in a
         similar fashion to user_namespaces(7), and is of the form
         container:host[:size].

       --gid-map=value
         Specifies a GID mapping to use when inserting files. This is used in a
         similar fashion to user_namespaces(7), and is of the form
         container:host[:size].

       --no-history
         Causes no history entry to be added for this operation. This is not
         recommended for use with umoci-insert(1), since it results in the history not
         including all of the image layers -- and thus will cause confusion with tools
         that look at image history.

       --history.comment=comment
         Comment for the history entry corresponding to this modification of the image
         If unspecified, umoci(1) will generate an implementation-dependent value.

       --history.created_by=created_by
         CreatedBy entry for the history entry corresponding to this modification of
         the image. If unspecified, umoci(1) will generate an
         implementation-dependent value.

       --history.author=author
         Author value for the history entry corresponding to this modification of the
         image. If unspecified, this value will be the image's author value after
         any modifications were made by this call of umoci-config(1).

       --history-created=date
         Creation date for the history entry corresponding to this modifications of
         the image. This must be an ISO8601 formatted timestamp (see date(1)). If
         unspecified, the current time is used.

EXAMPLE

       The following inserts a file mybinary into the path /usr/bin/mybinary and a directory
       myconfigdir into the path /etc/myconfigdir. It should be noted that if /etc/myconfigdir
       already exists in the image, the contents of the two directories are merged (with the
       newer layer taking precedence).

              % umoci insert --image oci:foo mybinary /usr/bin/mybinary
              % umoci insert --image oci:foo myconfigdir /etc/myconfigdir

       And in these examples we delete /usr/bin/mybinary and replace the entirety of /etc with
       myetcdir (such that none of the old /etc entries will be present on umoci-unpack(1)).

              % umoci insert --image oci:foo --whiteout /usr/bin/mybinary
              % umoci insert --image oci:foo --opaque myetcdir /etc
