NAME

       netplan-dbus - daemon to access netplan’s functionality via a DBus API

SYNOPSIS

       netplan-dbus

DESCRIPTION

       netplan-dbus  is  a  DBus  daemon,  providing  io.netplan.Netplan  on the system bus.  The
       /io/netplan/Netplan  object  provides  an  io.netplan.Netplan  interface,   offering   the
       following methods:

       • Apply() -> b: calls netplan apply and returns a success or failure status.

       • Generate() -> b: calls netplan generate and returns a success or failure status.

       • Info()  ->  a(sv): returns a dict “Features -> as”, containing an array of all available
         feature flags.

       • Config() -> o: prepares a  new  config  object  as  /io/netplan/Netplan/config/<ID>,  by
         copying the current state from /{etc,run,lib}/netplan/*.yaml

       The /io/netplan/Netplan/config/<ID> objects provide a io.netplan.Netplan.Config interface,
       offering the following methods:

       • Get() -> s: calls netplan  get  –root-dir=/run/netplan/config-ID  all  and  returns  the
         merged YAML config of the the given config object’s state

       • Set(s:CONFIG_DELTA,     s:ORIGIN_HINT)     ->    b:    calls    netplan    set    –root-
         dir=/run/netplan/config-ID –origin-hint=ORIGIN_HINT CONFIG_DELTA

         CONFIG_DELTA can be something like:  network.ethernets.eth0.dhcp4=true  and  ORIGIN_HINT
         can  be something like: 70-snapd (it will then write the config to 70-snapd.yaml).  Once
         Set() is called on a config object, all other current  and  future  config  objects  are
         being  invalidated  and cannot Set() or Try()/Apply() anymore, due to this pending dirty
         state.  After the dirty config object is rejected via Cancel(), the other config objects
         are  valid  again.   If  the  dirty config object is accepted via Apply(), newly created
         config objects will be valid, while the older states will stay invalid.

       • Try(u:TIMEOUT_SEC) -> b: replaces  the  main  netplan  configuration  with  this  config
         object’s state and calls netplan try –timeout=TIMEOUT_SEC

       • Cancel()  ->  b:  rejects a currently running Try() attempt on this config object and/or
         discards the config object

       • Apply() -> b: replaces the main netplan configuration with this  config  object’s  state
         and calls netplan apply

       For   information   about   the   Apply()/Try()/Get()/Set()  functionality,  see  netplan-
       apply(8)/netplan-try(8)/netplan-get(8)/netplan-set(8) accordingly.   For  details  of  the
       configuration file format, see netplan(5).
