NAME


kdb-import - Import an existing configuration into the key database

SYNOPSIS


kdb import <destination> [<format>]

Where destination is the destination where the user want´s the keys to be imported into
and format is the format the current keys or configuration is stored in.
If the format argument is not passed, then the default format will be used as determined
by the value of the sw/kdb/current/format key. By default, that key is set to the dump
format.
The format attribute relies on Elektra´s plugin system to properly import the
configuration. The user can view all plugins available for use by running the kdb-list(1)
command. To learn about any plugin, the user can simply use the kdb-info(1) command.

DESCRIPTION


This command allows a user to import an existing configuration into the key database.
The configuration that the user wants to import is read from stdin.
The user should specify the format that the current configuration or keys are in,
otherwise the default format will be used.
The default format is dump but can be changed by editing the value of the
sw/kdb/current/format key.

CONFLICTS


Conflicts can occur when importing a configuration to a part of the database where keys
already exist.
Conflicts when importing can be resolved using a strategy with the -s argument.

STRATEGIES


Currently the following strategies exist for importing configurations:

cut Removes existing keys below destination and repalces them with the keys resulting
from the import.
This is the default strategy.

import Preserves existing keys below destination only if they do not exist in the keys
being imported.
If the key does exist in the imported keys, the current version will be
overwritten.

To import a configuration stored in the ini format in a file called example.ini below
user/keyset replacing any previous keys stored there:
cat example.ini | kdb import -s cut user/keyset ini

To import a configuration stored in the ini format in a file called example.ini below
user/keyset keeping any previous keys stored there that aren´t present in the newly
imported configuration:
cat example.ini | kdb import -s import user/keyset ini

To restore a backup (stored as sw.ecf) of a user´s configuration below system/sw:
cat sw.ecf | kdb import system/sw
