NAME

       pro - Manage Ubuntu Pro services from Canonical

SYNOPSIS

       pro <command> [<args>]
       ua <command> [<args>]
       ubuntu-advantage <command> [<args>]

DESCRIPTION

       Ubuntu  Pro  is  a collection of services offered by Canonical to Ubuntu users. The Ubuntu
       Pro command line tool is used to attach a system to an Ubuntu Pro contract to then  enable
       and  disable services from Canonical. The available commands and services are described in
       more detail below.

COMMANDS

       attach [--no-auto-enable] [--attach-config=/path/to/file.yaml] <token>
              Connect an Ubuntu Pro support contract to this machine.

              The token parameter can be obtained from https://auth.contracts.canonical.com/.

              The --attach-config option can be used  to  provide  a  file  with  the  token  and
              optionally,  a  list  of  services  to  enable after attaching. The token parameter
              should not be used if this option is provided. An attach config file looks like the
              following:
                  token: YOUR_TOKEN_HERE  # required
                  enable_services:        # optional list of service names to auto-enable
                      - esm-infra
                      - esm-apps
                      - cis

              The  optional  --no-auto-enable  flag  will  disable  the  automatic  enablement of
              recommended entitlements which  usually  happens  immediately  after  a  successful
              attach.

              The exit code can be:
                  0: on successful attach
                  1: in case of any error while trying to attach
                  2: if the machine is already attached

       collect-logs [-o <file>| --output <file>]
              Create a tarball with all relevant logs and debug data.

              The  --output  parameter defines the path to the tarball. If not provided, the file
              is saved as pro_logs.tar.gz in the current directory.

       detach Remove the Ubuntu Pro support contract from this machine. This  also  disables  all
              enabled services that can be.

       disable [cc-eal|cis|esm-apps|esm-infra|fips|fips-updates|
               livepatch|realtime-kernel|ros|ros-updates]

              Disable this machine's access to an Ubuntu Pro service.

       enable [cc-eal|cis|esm-apps|esm-infra|fips|fips-updates|
              livepatch|realtime-kernel|ros|ros-updates]

              Activate and configure this machine's access to an Ubuntu Pro service.

       fix <security_issue>
              Fix a CVE or USN on the system by upgrading the appropriate package(s).

              <security_issue>  can  be  any  of  the following formats: CVE-yyyy-nnnn, CVE-yyyy-
              nnnnnnn, or USN-nnnn-dd.

              The exit code can be 0, 1, or 2.
                  0: the fix was successfully applied
                  1: the fix cannot be applied
                  2: the fix was applied but requires a reboot before it takes effect

       refresh
              Refresh contract and service details from Canonical.

       security-status
              Show security updates for packages in  the  system,  including  all  available  ESM
              related content.

       status [--format=tabular|json|yaml] [--simulate-with-token TOKEN] [--all]
              Report current status of Ubuntu Pro services on system.

              This shows whether this machine is attached to an Ubuntu Pro support contract. When
              attached, the report includes  the  specific  support  contract  details  including
              contract name, expiry dates, and the status of each service on this system.

              The attached status output has four columns:

              SERVICE: name of the service

              ENTITLED:  whether  the  contract to which this machine is attached entitles use of
              this service. Possible values are: yes or no

              STATUS: whether the service is enabled  on  this  machine.   Possible  values  are:
              enabled,  disabled, n/a (if your contract entitles you to the service, but it isn't
              available for this machine) or  (if you aren't entitled to this service)

              DESCRIPTION: a brief description of the service

              The unattached status output instead has three columns. SERVICE and DESCRIPTION are
              the same as above, and there is the addition of:

              AVAILABLE:  whether  this service would be available if this machine were attached.
              The possible values are yes or no.

              If --simulate-with-token is used, then  the  output  has  five  columns.   SERVICE,
              AVAILABLE,   ENTITLED  and  DESCRIPTION  are  the  same  as  mentioned  above,  and
              AUTO_ENABLED shows whether the service is set to be  enabled  when  that  token  is
              attached.

              If  the  --all  flag  is  set, beta and unavailable services are also listed in the
              output.

       version
              Show version of the Ubuntu Pro package.

PRO UPGRADE DAEMON

       Ubuntu Pro client sets up a daemon on supported platforms (currently on Azure and GCP)  to
       detect  if an Ubuntu Pro license is purchased for the machine. If an Ubuntu Pro license is
       detected, then the machine is automatically attached.  If you are uninterested  in  Ubuntu
       Pro services, you can safely stop and disable the daemon using systemctl:

       sudo    systemctl   stop   ubuntu-advantage.service   sudo   systemctl   disable   ubuntu-
       advantage.service

TIMER JOBS

       Ubuntu Pro client sets  up  a  systemd  timer  to  run  jobs  that  need  to  be  executed
       recurrently.  The  timer  itself  ticks every 5 minutes on average, and decides which jobs
       need to be executed based on their intervals.

       Jobs are executed by the timer script if the script has not yet run successfully, or their
       interval  since  last successful run is already exceeded.  There is a random delay applied
       to the timer, to desynchronize job execution time on machines spinned at  the  same  time,
       avoiding multiple synchronized calls to the same service.

       Current jobs being checked and executed are:

       update_messaging
              Makes  sure  that the MOTD and APT messages match the available/enabled services on
              the system, showing information about available packages or security updates.

CONFIGURATION

       By  default,  Ubuntu  Pro  client  configuration  options  are  read   from   /etc/ubuntu-
       advantage/uaclient.conf.

       The following configuration options are available:

       contract_url
              The Ubuntu Pro contract server URL

       security_url
              The Ubuntu Pro security server URL

       data_dir
              Where Ubuntu Pro client stores its data files

       log_level
              The logging level used when writing to log_file

       log_file
              The log file for the Ubuntu Pro client cli

       The following options are set using the `pro config set` subcommand:

       http_proxy
              If set, pro will use the specified http proxy when making any http requests

       https_proxy
              If set, pro will use the specified https proxy when making any https requests

       apt_http_proxy
              [DEPRECATED]  If  set,  pro  will  configure apt to use the specified http proxy by
              writing  a  apt  config  file  to  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90ubuntu-advantage-aptproxy.
              (Please use global_apt_http_proxy)

       apt_https_proxy
              [DEPRECATED]  If  set,  pro  will configure apt to use the specified https proxy by
              writing  a  apt  config  file  to  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90ubuntu-advantage-aptproxy.
              (Please use global_apt_https_proxy)

       global_apt_http_proxy
              If  set,  pro  will  configure apt to use the specified http proxy by writing a apt
              config file to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90ubuntu-advantage-aptproxy.  Set  this  if  you
              prefer a global proxy for all resources, not just the ones from esm.ubuntu.com

       global_apt_https_proxy
              If  set,  pro  will configure apt to use the specified https proxy by writing a apt
              config file to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90ubuntu-advantage-aptproxy.  Set  this  if  you
              prefer a global proxy for all resources, not just the ones from esm.ubuntu.com

       ua_apt_http_proxy
              If  set,  pro  will  configure apt to use the specified http proxy by writing a apt
              config  file  to  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90ubuntu-advantage-aptproxy.  This  proxy  is
              limited to accessing resources from esm.ubuntu.com

       ua_apt_https_proxy
              If  set,  pro  will configure apt to use the specified https proxy by writing a apt
              config  file  to  /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90ubuntu-advantage-aptproxy.  This  proxy  is
              limited to accessing resources from esm.ubuntu.com

       <job_name>_timer
              Sets  the  timer  running  interval for a specific job. Those intervals are checked
              every time the systemd timer runs.

       If needed, authentication to the proxy server can be performed  by  setting  username  and
       password in the URL itself, as in:

         http_proxy: http://<username>:<password>@<fqdn>:<port>

       Additionally,  some  configuration options can be overridden in the environment by setting
       an environment  variable  prefaced  by  UA_<option_name>.  Both  uppercase  and  lowercase
       environment  variables  are  allowed.  The  configuration  options  that support this are:
       data_dir, log_file, log_level, and security_url.

       For example, the following overrides the log_level found in uaclient.conf:

         UA_LOG_LEVEL=info pro attach

SERVICES

       Common Criteria EAL2 Provisioning (cc-eal)
              Enables and install the Common Criteria artifacts.

              The artifacts include a configure script, a tarball with additional  packages,  and
              post  install  scripts. The artifacts will be installed in /usr/lib/common-criteria
              directory   and   the   README   and   configuration   guide   are   available   in
              /usr/share/doc/ubuntu-commoncriteria directory.

       CIS Audit (cis)
              Enables and installs the CIS Audit artifacts.

       Expanded Security Maintenance (esm)
              Expanded Security Maintenance ensures the ongoing security and integrity of systems
              running  Ubuntu  Long  Term  Support  (LTS)  releases  through   Ubuntu   Pro   for
              Infrastructure.

              See https://ubuntu.com/esm for more information.

       FIPS 140-2 certified modules (fips)
              Install, configure, and enable FIPS 140-2 certified modules.

              After  successfully  enabling  FIPS, the system MUST be rebooted. Failing to reboot
              will result in the system not running the updated FIPS kernel.

              Disabling FIPS is not currently supported.

       FIPS 140-2 certified modules with updates (fips-updates)
              Install, configure, and enable FIPS 140-2 certified modules with updates.  Enabling
              FIPS  with  updates  will  take  the  system  out of FIPS compliance as the updated
              modules are not FIPS certified.

              After successfully enabling FIPS with updates, the system MUST be rebooted. Failing
              to reboot will result in the system not running the updated FIPS kernel.

              Disabling FIPS with updates is not currently supported.
