Uninstalling on OpenShift
Below is the processes for uninstalling cert-manager on OpenShift.
Warning: To uninstall cert-manager you should always use the same process for installing but in reverse. Deviating from the following process can cause issues and potentially broken states. Please ensure you follow the below steps when uninstalling to prevent this happening.
Before you can uninstall cert-manager, you must first ensure your local machine
is configured to talk to your OpenShift cluster using the
Login to the OpenShift cluster as the system:admin user
$ oc login -u system:admin
Before continuing, ensure that all cert-manager resources that have been created by users have been deleted. You can check for any existing resources with the following command:
$ oc get Issuers,ClusterIssuers,Certificates,CertificateRequests,Orders,Challenges --all-namespaces
Once all these resources have been deleted you are ready to uninstall cert-manager.
Uninstalling from an installation with regular manifests is a case of running
the installation process, in reverse, using the delete command of
Delete the installation manifests using a link to your currently running version
vX.Y.Z like so:
$ oc delete -f https://github.com/cert-manager/cert-manager/releases/download/vX.Y.Z/cert-manager-openshift.yaml
If the namespace has been marked for deletion without deleting the cert-manager
installation first, the namespace may become stuck in a terminating state. This
is typically due to the fact that the
resource still exists however the webhook is no longer running so is no longer
reachable. To resolve this, ensure you have run the above commands correctly,
and if you're still experiencing issues then run:
$ oc delete apiservice v1beta1.webhook.cert-manager.io
