Kubernetes – Get terminationGracePeriodSeconds and Other Values Missing From Describe Pod/Deployment

When checking what is running in kubernetes, people generally do something like this:

kubectl get deploy -n <namespace>
kubectl get pods -n <namespace>

And to describe extended parameters on a deployment or pod:

kubectl describe deploy -n <namespace> <deployment-name>
kubectl describe pod -n <namespace> <pod-name>

Interestingly, these more verbose describe commands are still missing a lot of information. It turns out that the only way to get *all* of the information is to go back to the get command and to tell it to output everything to YAML or a similar format:

kubectl get deploy -n <namespace> -o yaml
kubectl get pods -n <namespace> -o yaml

These commands will yield far more configuration options than the describe commands. Things like terminationGracePeriodSeconds will be readily available here.
