How can I create an instance of a Kube cronjob?
If you’re trying to test out a job, and don’t want to wait for however long, you can manually create a job instance.
Assuming our cronjob is called
sports-leaderboard-calc, you can create it like so:
> kubectl create job instance-name --from=cronjob/sports-leaderboard-calc job.batch/instance-name
You’ll then see the resulting job and pod under
kubectl get job and
kubectl get pod respectively.
