NAME

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

       A  tag  is  a  custom  description  that is applied to a node. A tag, once applied, can be
       helpful when managing nodes using knife or when building recipes  by  providing  alternate
       methods of grouping similar types of information.

       The knife tag subcommand is used to apply tags to nodes on a Chef server.

COMMON OPTIONS

       The  following  options  may  be used with any of the arguments available to the knife tag
       subcommand:

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

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

       -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.

       -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.

       -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.

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

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

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

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

       -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.
