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

       The knife list subcommand is used to view a list of objects on the 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).

       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.

              Indicates that colored output will be used.

       -d, --disable-editing
              Indicates that $EDITOR will not be opened; data will be accepted as-is.

              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.

       -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

       -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).


       This argument has the following syntax:

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


       This subcommand has the following options:

       -1     Indicates that only one results column will be shown.

       --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.

              The number of allowed concurrent connections. Default: 10.

       -d     Indicates  that a directory's children will not be shown when a directory matches a
              pattern. Default value: false.

       -f, --flat
              Indicates that a list of file names will be shown. Set to  false  to  view  ls-like
              output. Default: false.

              Indicates  that  only  contents  of  the local directory will be returned. Default:

       -1     Indicates that only one column of results will be shown. Default: false.

       -p     Indicates that trailing slashes (/) will be shown for directories. Default: false.

       -R     Indicates that directories will be listed 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.


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

       $ knife list roles/

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

       $ knife list roles/ environments/

       To view a list of absolutely everything on the server:
