You can configure Kubernetes Image Puller to pre-pull default Che images. Eclipse Che operator will control the list of images to pre-pull and automatically updates them on Che upgrade.

  • Your organization’s instance of Che is installed and running on Kubernetes cluster.

  • Image Puller is installed on Kubernetes cluster.

  • An active kubectl session with administrative permissions to the destination Kubernetes cluster. See Overview of kubectl.

    kubectl patch checluster/eclipse-che \
        --namespace eclipse-che \
        --type='merge' \
        --patch '{
                  "spec": {
                    "components": {
                      "imagePuller": {
