Checking Rollout History/ Rollback of a Deployment

One useful feature of deployments is the ability to track the rollout history. To view rollout history, use the following command:

kubectl rollout history deployment/nginx
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You will see output something similar to this.

deployment.apps/nginx 
REVISION CHANGE-CAUSE
1     <none>
2     <none>
3     <none>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

We can get details on a particular revision with:

kubectl rollout history deployment.v1.apps/nginx --revision=1
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Output:

deployment.apps/nginx with revision #1
Pod Template:
 Labels:    app=frontend
    pod-template-hash=776567f984
 Containers:
  nginx:
  Image:    nginx:latest
  Port: 80/TCP
  Host Port:    0/TCP
  Environment:  <none>
  Mounts:   <none>
 Volumes:   <none>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Also check the pods list, you will see following output, where deployment controller trying to reconcile the status.

kubectl get pods -l app=frontend
