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, @, ˆ, [, , or _. Specifying "" disables this feature. The default is ctrl-p,ctrl-q.

This option can also be set in containers.conf(5) file.

--latest, -l

Instead of providing the container name or ID, use the last created container. Note: the last started container can be from other users of Podman on the host machine. (This option is not available with the remote Podman client, including Mac and Windows (excluding WSL2) machines)


Do not attach STDIN. The default is false.


Proxy received signals to the container process. SIGCHLD, SIGURG, SIGSTOP, and SIGKILL are not proxied.

The default is true.
