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

       The  knife  list  subcommand  is  used  to view a list of objects on the Chef server. This
       subcommand works similar to knife cookbook list, knife data bag  list,  knife  environment
       list, knife node list, and knife role list, but with a single verb (and a single action).


       This subcommand has the following syntax:

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


       This subcommand has the following options:

       -1     Use to show only one column of results. Default: false.

       -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.

              Use to view colored output.

              The number of allowed concurrent connections. Default: 10.

       -d     Use to prevent a directory's children from  showing  when  a  directory  matches  a
              pattern. Default value: false.

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

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

       -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, --flat
              Use to show a list of file names. Set to false to  view  ls-like  output.  Default:

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

       -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.

              Use to return only the contents of the local directory. Default: false.

       -p     Use to show directories with trailing slashes (/). Default: false.

              Use to show data after a destructive operation.

       -R     Use to list directories recursively. Default: false.

       --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

       -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.


       For example, to view a list of roles on the Chef server:

          $ knife list roles/

       To view a list of roles and environments on the Chef server:

          $ knife list roles/ environments/

       To view a list of absolutely everything on the Chef server:

          $ knife list -R /
