podman-attach - Attach to a running container
podman attach [options] container
podman container attach [options] container
podman attach attaches to a running container using
the container's name or ID, to either view its ongoing output
or to control it interactively.
The container can be detached from (and leave it running) using a configurable key sequence. The default sequence is ctrl-p,ctrl-q. Configure the keys sequence using the --detach-keys OPTION, or specifying it in the containers.conf file: see containers.conf(5) for more information.
Specify the key sequence for detaching a container. Format is a single character [a-Z] or one or more ctrl-<value> characters where <value> is one of: a-z, @, ^, [, , or _. Specifying "" will disable this feature. The default is ctrl-p,ctrl-q.
This option can also be set in containers.conf(5) file.
Instead of providing the container ID or name, use
the last created container. If other methods than Podman are used to
run containers such as CRI-O, the last started
container could be from either of those methods.
The default is false.
IMPORTANT: This OPTION is not available with the remote Podman client, including Mac and Windows (excluding WSL2) machines. This OPTION does not need a container name or ID as input argument.
Do not attach STDIN. The default is false.
Proxy received signals to the container process (non-TTY mode only). SIGCHLD, SIGSTOP, and SIGKILL are not proxied.
The default is true.
