NAME

knife-raw - The man page for the knife raw subcommand. \$1 \n[an-margin] level \n[rst2man-indent-level] level margin: \n[rst2man-indent\n[rst2man-indent-level]] - \n[rst2man-indent0] \n[rst2man-indent1] \n[rst2man-indent2]

The knife raw subcommand is used to send a REST request to a specified path using the Chef Server API.

Syntax

This subcommand has the following syntax:


$ knife raw REQUEST_PATH (options)

This subcommand has the following options:
-c CONFIG_FILE, --config CONFIG_FILE
  The configuration file to use.
--chef-zero-port PORT
  The port on which chef-zero will listen.
--[no-]color
  Use to view colored output.
-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.
-i FILE, --input FILE
  The name of a file to be used with the PUT or a POST request.
-k KEY, --key KEY
  The private key that Knife will use to sign requests made by the API client to the Chef server.
-m METHOD, --method METHOD
  The request method: DELETE, GET, POST, or PUT. Default value: GET.
--[no-]pretty
  Use --no-pretty to disable pretty-print output for JSON. Default: --pretty.
--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, --version
  The version of the chef-client.
-V, --verbose
  Set for more verbose outputs. Use -VV for maximum verbosity.
-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.

Examples

knife raw /clients/<client_name>


To view information about a node:


knife raw /nodes/<node_name>


To delete a data bag, enter a command similar to:
