dacs_conf - display DACS configuration directives

DACS_CONF(8) DACS Web Services Manual DACS_CONF(8)

NAME

dacs_conf - display DACS configuration directives

SYNOPSIS

dacs_conf [ dacsoptions[1]]

DESCRIPTION

This program is part of the DACS suite.
The dacs_conf web service processes and displays DACS configuration files (see dacs.conf(5)[2]).
If XML output is selected, a document conforming to dacs_conf_reply.dtd[3] is returned.
Although the order in which clauses appear in configuration files can be important, the order of configuration directives is for the most part not significant. The exception is the EVAL[4] directive. These directives are listed in the order in which they would be evaluated, and their unevaluated values appear in the output.
 
 
Note
 
 
This program is also available as a DACS utility, dacsconf(1)[5]. Because dacs_admin(8)[6] provides the same functionality and more, dacs_conf may be removed in a future release.
 
 
 
Security
 
 
Because the configuration details that are displayed could be taken advantage of by an attacker, the default DACS ACL restricts use of this web service to a DACS administrator.
 

OPTIONS

Web Service Arguments

In addition to the standard CGI arguments[7], dacs_conf understands the following CGI arguments:
DIRECTIVE
This optional, repeatable argument is a comma-separated list of directive names or variable references to be displayed. This is similar to the directive-name arguments to dacsconf(1)[5].
 
An example of a directive name is JURISDICTION_NAME. An example of a variable reference is ${Conf::jurisdiction_name:i}.
VARS
If the value of this optional argument is "yes", the effect on output formatting is the same as when the -vars flag is give to dacsconf(1)[5]. The default value is "no".

FILES

conf.css[8]

DIAGNOSTICS

The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred.

BUGS

The JSON output flavour ( FORMAT) is not implemented.
