DACSCONF(1)                  DACS Commands Manual                  DACSCONF(1)



NAME
       dacsconf - display configuration directives

SYNOPSIS
       dacsconf [dacsoptions[1]] [-vars] [directive-name...]

       dacsconf [-item_types]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of the DACS suite.

       The dacsconf utility processes DACS configuration files (see
       dacs.conf(5)[2]) and outputs to stdout the values of directives or
       variable references currently in effect for the specified jurisdiction.

       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[3] directive. These
       directives are listed in the order in which they would be evaluated,
       and their unevaluated values appear in the output.

       This program is also available as a DACS web service, dacs_conf(8)[4].

           Security
           Because the configuration might reveal information that could be
           taken advantage of by an attacker, only the DACS administrator
           should be able to run this command.

OPTIONS
       -item_types
           List the names of all predefined item types. The presence of a name
           does not imply that DACS has been configured to use the item type.

       -vars
           By default, directives that appear within a clause (e.g., <Auth> or
           <Roles>) are emitted in the context of that clause. This option
           "flattens" the output by emitting it in the form of DACS variables.

           For example, the STYLE directive in an Auth section having an id of
           foo will appear as AUTH.FOO.STYLE in the output.

           All variables in the Conf namespace are displayed, including those
           set by EVAL.

       directive-name
           One or more directive names or variable references may be provided
           to limit the output. It is not an error if a directive-name is not
           defined.

FILES
       conf.css[5]

DIAGNOSTICS
       The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred.
       Error messages are printed to stderr.
