PROGRAM:

NAME


knife-upload - The man page for the knife upload subcommand.

The knife upload subcommand is used to upload roles, cookbooks, environments, and data
bags to the Chef server from the current working directory in the chef-repo. This
subcommand is often used in conjunction with knife diff, which can be used to see exactly
what changes will be uploaded, and then knife download, which does the opposite of knife
upload.

Syntax

This subcommand has the following syntax:

$ knife upload [PATTERN...] (options)

Options

This subcommand has the following options:

-c CONFIG_FILE, --config CONFIG_FILE
The configuration file to use.

--chef-repo-path PATH
The path to the chef-repo. This setting will override the default path to the
chef-repo. Default: same as specified by chef_repo_path in config.rb.

--chef-zero-port PORT
The port on which chef-zero will listen.

--[no-]color
Use to view colored output.

--concurrency
The number of allowed concurrent connections. Default: 10.

-d, --disable-editing
Use to prevent the $EDITOR from being opened and to accept data as-is.

--defaults
Use to have knife use the default value instead of asking a user to provide one.

--[no-]diff
Use to upload only new and modified files. Set to false to upload all files.
Default: true.

-e EDITOR, --editor EDITOR
The $EDITOR that is used for all interactive commands.

-E ENVIRONMENT, --environment ENVIRONMENT
The name of the environment. When this option is added to a command, the command
will run only against the named environment.

-F FORMAT, --format FORMAT
The output format: summary (default), text, json, yaml, and pp.

--[no-]force
Use --force to upload roles, cookbooks, etc. even if the file in the directory is
identical (by default, no POST or PUT is performed unless an actual change would be
made). Default: --no-force.

--[no-]freeze
Use to require changes to a cookbook be included as a new version. Only the --force
option can override this setting. Default: false.

-h, --help
Shows help for the command.

-k KEY, --key KEY
The private key that knife will use to sign requests made by the API client to the
Chef server.

-n, --dry-run
Use to take no action and only print out results. Default: false.

--print-after
Use to show data after a destructive operation.

--[no-]purge
Use --purge to delete roles, cookbooks, etc. from the Chef server if their
corresponding files do not exist in the chef-repo. By default, such objects are
left alone and NOT purged. Default: --no-purge.

--[no-]recurse
Use --no-recurse to disable uploading a directory recursively. Default: --recurse.

--repo-mode MODE
The layout of the local chef-repo. Possible values: static, everything, or
hosted_everything. Use static for just roles, environments, cookbooks, and data
bags. By default, everything and hosted_everything are dynamically selected
depending on the server type. Default: everything / hosted_everything.

-s URL, --server-url URL
The URL for the Chef server.

-u USER, --user USER
The user name used by knife to sign requests made by the API client to the Chef
server. Authentication will fail if the user name does not match the private key.

-v, --version
The version of the chef-client.

-V, --verbose
Set for more verbose outputs. Use -VV for maximum verbosity.

-y, --yes
Use to respond to all confirmation prompts with "Yes". knife will not ask for
confirmation.

-z, --local-mode
Use to run the chef-client in local mode. This allows all commands that work
against the Chef server to also work against the local chef-repo.
