Init command

Init a config schema (.cfgu.json) file in the current working directory

Configu init --name "some-schema" --examples

Store command

A store specifies the location of the data. You can connect the CLI to multiple stores (each one of them needs to have a different name (--name) and if non of them is "default" the default store will be the first one). The --uri flag supports full paths and interactive logins; to log in interactively, simply provide the store name and end with -. You can specify the whole path, including the user/organization and password/token. for example, using Configiu's store interactively:

Configu store --name "default" --uri "configu://-"

If you want the complete path, please enter:

Configu store --name "default" --uri "configu://my-access-token@my-org"

Upsert command

The upsert (update/insert) command creates/updates a set of values for your schema.

Required flags:

  • --set: a set name built as an absolute path from the root set /
  • --schema: schema path can be an absolute or relative path (to the .cfgu.json on your file system); if you have linked values you need to provide all related schemas as well

Optional flags:

  • --store: provide the name of a saved store or specify the store URI; the "default" store will be used by default.
  • --configu: config lets you assign values to the schema keys directly from the CLI as a key-value pair or as a linked to value on a another store
  • --interactive: it will open Configu's app when used with Configu store
  • --import: values can be imported from existing configuration files like .env, JSON and etc (the file must be flat and without hierarchy)
Configu upsert \
[--store "store-name"]
--set "/production/example" --schema "./some-schema.cfgu.json" [--schema "./other/schema.cfgu.json"] \
[--config "key=value" --config "key2={ type: 'HashiCorpVault', path: 'kv/production/some-secret' }"]
[--import "file-path"]

Export command

Export allows you to export and synchronize your configuration across all your deployments, and it runs easily locally, on your CI/CD servers, on your clusters, or anywhere else you need it. You can use Configu CLI with any automation or orchestration software.

configu export /
--set "/production/example" --schema "./some-schema.cfgu.json" [--schema "./other/schema.cfgu.json"] \
[--matrix "['/development', './some-schema.cfgu.json'] ['/staging', './other/schema.cfgu.json']" ]
[--format] \
[--template] \

As it has many options and flags, we recommend using the CLI command generator if this is your first time, navigate to IntegrationsConfigu CLI).
