–record has been deprecated, then what is the alternative

When I am running the below command to record the change cause –

kubectl set image deployment.v1.apps/deploy1 nginx=nginx:1.16.0 --record 

Then it is recording the change cause but showing that –record has been deprecated.

Flag --record has been deprecated, --record will be removed in the future
deployment.apps/deploy1 image updated

And when I run the command kubectl set image deployment.v1.apps/deploy1 nginx=nginx:1.16.0 without –record then it is not recording the change cause.

So my question is if the --record has been deprecated and with be removed in the future then what is easy alternative of that to record change? ( I mean to record the command using which I have done rollout ).

Thanks in advance.

>Solution :

Not sure if it’s deprecated or will be fully.

You can use the annotate to manage the history same way.

  1. Create the deployment

    kubectl create deployment nginx –image=nginx:1.16.0 –replicas 1

  2. check the history

    kubectl rollout history deployment nginx

  3. update the image on deployment

    kubectl set image deployment nginx nginx=nginx:latest

  4. Annotate the deployment now and create the history

    kubectl annotate deployment nginx kubernetes.io/change-cause="version change to 1.16.0 to latest" –overwrite=true

  5. Check the history

    kubectl rollout history deployment nginx
