OpenShift - Display API Server URL using the oc config view command

If you are not familiar with the oc command, refer to OpenShift - Getting Started with the oc command.

After you have successfully logged into OpenShift, your /home/your_username/.kube/config file will be created. The oc config view command can be used to parse your /home/your_username/.kube/config file and display the contents of the file, which should return something like this.

~]$ oc config view
apiVersion: v1
- cluster:
- context:
    cluster: api-openshift-example-com:6443
    namespace: default
    user: john.doe/api-openshift-example-com:6443
  name: default/api-openshift-example-com:6443/john.doe
current-context: default/api-openshift-example-com:6443/john.doe
kind: Config
preferences: {}
- name: john.doe
    token: sha256~83miYt8vIEHeP6CDaTKRy2SUruoo-TuVxdYToGQQOqo


The --output jsonpath option can be used to return the output as JSON and to then return the value of a specific JSON key.

~]$ oc config view --output jsonpath='{.clusters[*].cluster.server}'
