config Command Group¤
List and edit configs as well as get config values. Configurations are identified by the section identifier in the config file. Each configuration represent a Corporate Memory deployment with its specific access method as well as credentials. A minimal configuration which uses client credentials has the following entries: [example.org] CMEM_BASE_URI=https://cmem.example.org/ OAUTH_GRANT_TYPE=client_credentials OAUTH_CLIENT_ID=cmem-service-account OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET=my-secret-account-pass Note that OAUTH_GRANT_TYPE can be either client_credentials, password or prefetched_token. In addition to that, the following config parameters can be used as well: SSL_VERIFY=False - for ignoring certificate issues (not recommended) DP_API_ENDPOINT=URL - to point to a non-standard DataPlatform location DI_API_ENDPOINT=URL - to point to a non-standard DataIntegration location OAUTH_TOKEN_URI=URL - to point to an external IdentityProvider location OAUTH_USER=username - only if OAUTH_GRANT_TYPE=password OAUTH_PASSWORD=password - only if OAUTH_GRANT_TYPE=password OAUTH_ACCESS_TOKEN=token - only if OAUTH_GRANT_TYPE=prefetched_token In order to get credential information from an external process, you can use the parameter OAUTH_PASSWORD_PROCESS, OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET_PROCESS and OAUTH_ACCESS_TOKEN_PROCESS to setup an external executable. OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET_PROCESS=/path/to/getpass.sh OAUTH_PASSWORD_PROCESS=["getpass.sh", "parameter1", "parameter2"] The credential executable can use the cmemc environment for fetching the credential (e.g. CMEM_BASE_URI and OAUTH_USER). If the credential executable is not given with a full path, cmemc will look into your environment PATH for something which can be executed. The configured process needs to return the credential on the first line of stdout. In addition to that, the process needs to exit with exit code 0 (without failure). There are examples available in the online manual.
List configured connections.
This command lists all configured connections from the currently used config file.
The connection identifier can be used with the
--connection option in order to use a specific Corporate Memory instance.
In order to apply commands on more than one instance, you need to use typical unix gear such as xargs or parallel.
Edit the user-scope configuration file.
Get the value of a known cmemc configuration key.
In order to automate processes such as fetching custom API data from multiple Corporate Memory instances, this command provides a way to get the value of a cmemc configuration key for the selected deployment.
The commands return with exit code 1 if the config key is not used in the current configuration.
Export all configuration values of a configuration for evaluation.
The output of this command is suitable to be used by a shell’s
eval command. It will output the complete configuration as
export key="value" statements, which allow for the preparation of a shell environment.
Please be aware that credential details are shown in cleartext with this command.
