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.
