Search reads through all of the repositories configured on the system, and looks for matches. Search of these repositories uses the metadata stored on the system.

It will display the latest stable versions of the charts found. If you specify the –devel flag, the output will include pre-release versions. If you want to search using a version constraint, use –version.


# Search for stable release versions matching the keyword "nginx"
$ helm search repo nginx

# Search for release versions matching the keyword "nginx", including pre-release versions
$ helm search repo nginx --devel

# Search for the latest stable release for nginx-ingress with a major version of 1
$ helm search repo nginx-ingress --version ^1.0.0

Repositories are managed with ‘helm repo’ commands.
