knife-edit - The man page for the knife edit subcommand. The knife edit subcommand is used to edit objects on the server. This subcommand works similar to knife cookbook edit, knife data bag edit, knife environment edit, knife node edit, and knife role edit, but with a single verb (and a single action). Common Options The following options can be run with all Knife sub-commands and plug-ins: -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG The configuration file to use. --color Indicates that colored output will be used. -d, --disable-editing Indicates that $EDITOR will not be opened; data will be accepted as-is. --defaults Indicates that Knife will 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 FILE_NAME, --file FILE_NAME Indicates that the private key will be saved to a specified file name. -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 server. --no-color Indicates that color will not be used in the output. -p PASSWORD, --password PASSWORD The user password. --print-after Indicates that data will be shown after a destructive operation. -s URL, --server-url URL The URL for the server. -u USER, --user USER The user name used by Knife to sign requests made by the API client to the 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 Indicates that the response to all confirmation prompts will be "Yes" (and that Knife will not ask for confirmation). Syntax This argument has the following syntax: $ knife edit (options) Options This subcommand has the following options: --chef-repo-path PATH The path to the chef-repo.
