[--force] [--as-common-datasrc NAME]
[--publish-depends SIBLINGNAME]
name [url]
 
 

DESCRIPTION

Add a sibling to a dataset.

OPTIONS


name name of the sibling to be added. If RECURSIVE is set,
the same name will be used to address the subdatasets'
siblings. Constraints: value must be a string
[Default: None]
url the URL of or path to the dataset sibling named by
NAME. If you want to recursively add siblings, it is
expected, that you pass a template for building the
URLs of the siblings of all (sub)datasets by using
placeholders. List of currently available
placeholders: %NAME the name of the dataset, where
slashes are replaced by dashes. This option is ignored
if there is already a configured sibling dataset under
the name given by NAME. Constraints: value must be a
string [Default: None]
 

--version show the program's version and license information
-h, --help, --help-np
show this help message. --help-np forcefully disables
the use of a pager for displaying the help message
-l LEVEL, --log-level LEVEL
set logging verbosity level. Choose among critical,
error, warning, info, debug. Also you can specify an
integer <10 to provide even more debugging information
-p {condor}, --pbs-runner {condor}
execute command by scheduling it via available PBS.
For settings, config file will be consulted
--dataset DATASET, -d DATASET
specify the dataset to add the sibling to. If no
dataset is given, an attempt is made to identify the
dataset based on the current working directory.
Constraints: Value must be a Dataset or a valid
identifier of a Dataset (e.g. a path) [Default: None]
--pushurl PUSHURL
in case the URL cannot be used to publish to the
dataset sibling, this option specifies a URL to be
used instead. If no URL is given, PUSHURL serves as
URL as well. This option is ignored if there is
already a configured sibling dataset under the name
given by NAME. Constraints: value must be a string
[Default: None]
-r, --recursive
if set, recurse into potential subdataset. [Default:
False]
--fetch fetch the sibling after adding. [Default: False]
--force, -f
if sibling NAME exists already, force to
(re-)configure its URLs. [Default: False]
--as-common-datasrc NAME
configure the created sibling as a common data source
of the dataset that can be automatically used by all
consumers of the dataset (technical: git-annex auto-
enabled special remote). [Default: None]
--publish-depends SIBLINGNAME
add a dependency such that the given exsiting sibling
is always published prior to the new sibling. This
equals setting a configuration item
'remote.SIBLINGNAME.datalad-publish-depends'. This
option can be given more than once to configure
multiple dependencies. [Default: None]
