git-annex-rekey(1) General Commands Manual git-annex-rekey(1)

NAME

git-annex-rekey - change keys used for files

SYNOPSIS

git annex rekey [file key ...]

DESCRIPTION

This plumbing-level command is similar to migrate, but you specify both the file, and the new key to use for it.
Multiple pairs of file and key can be given in a single command line.

OPTIONS

--force
Allow rekeying of even files whose content is not currently available. Use with caution.
--batch
Enables batch mode, in which lines are read from stdin. Each line should contain the file, and the new key to use for that file, separated by a single space.
