       buildah-copy - Copies the contents of a file, URL, or directory into a container's working


       buildah copy container src [[src ...] dest]


       Copies the contents of a file, URL, or a directory to a container's working directory or a
       specified  location  in the container.  If a local directory is specified as a source, its
       contents are copied to the destination.



       Add an entry to the history which will note the digest of the added content.  Defaults  to

       Note:   You  can  also  override  the  default  value  of  --add-history  by  setting  the
       BUILDAH_HISTORY environment variable. export BUILDAH_HISTORY=true

       --chmod permissions

       Sets the access permissions of the destination content. Accepts the numerical format.

       --chown owner:group

       Sets the user and group ownership of the destination content.

       --contextdir directory

       Build context directory. Specifying a context directory causes Buildah to  chroot  into  a
       the  context  directory.  This means copying files pointed at by symbolic links outside of
       the chroot will fail.

       --from containerOrImage

       Use the root directory of the specified working container or image as the  root  directory
       when  resolving  absolute source paths and the path of the context directory.  If an image
       needs to be pulled, options recognized by buildah pull can be used.

       --ignorefile file

       Path to an alternative .containerignore (.dockerignore)  file.  Requires  --contextdir  be

       --quiet, -q

       Refrain from printing a digest of the copied content.


       buildah copy containerID '/myapp/app.conf' '/myapp/app.conf'

       buildah copy --chown myuser:mygroup containerID '/myapp/app.conf' '/myapp/app.conf'

       buildah copy --chmod 660 containerID '/myapp/app.conf' '/myapp/app.conf'

       buildah copy containerID '/home/myuser/myproject.go'

       buildah copy containerID '/home/myuser/myfiles.tar' '/tmp'

       buildah copy containerID '/tmp/workingdir' '/tmp/workingdir'

       buildah copy containerID '' '/tmp'

       buildah copy containerID 'passwd' 'certs.d' /etc


       If  the  .containerignore/.dockerignore file exists in the context directory, buildah copy
       reads its contents. If both exist, then .containerignore is used.

       When the \fB\fC--ignorefile\fR option is specified Buildah reads it and uses it to  decide
       which content to exclude when copying content into the working container.

       Users  can  specify  a  series  of  Unix shell glob patterns in an ignore file to identify
       files/directories to exclude.

       Buildah supports a special wildcard string ** which  matches  any  number  of  directories
       (including  zero).  For  example,  */.go will exclude all files that end with .go that are
       found in all directories.

       Example .containerignore/.dockerignore file:

              # here are files we want to exclude

       */*.c Excludes  files  and  directories  whose  names  ends  with  .c  in  any  top  level
       subdirectory. For example, the source file include/rootless.c.

       **/output* Excludes files and directories starting with output from any directory.

       src Excludes files named src and the directory src as well as any content in it.

       Lines starting with ! (exclamation mark) can be used to make exceptions to exclusions. The
       following is an example .containerignore/.dockerignore file that uses this mechanism:


       Exclude all doc files except Help.doc when copying content into the container.

       This functionality is compatible with the handling of .dockerignore files described here:
