DACS_CONF(8) DACS Web Services and CGI DACS_CONF(8)

NAME

dacs_conf — display DACS configuration directives

SYNOPSIS

dacs_conf [dacsoptions]

DESCRIPTION

This program is part of the DACS suite.

The dacs_conf web service processes and displays DACS configuration files (see dacs.conf(5)).

If XML output is selected, a document conforming to dacs_conf_reply.dtd 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 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). Because dacs_admin(8) 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, 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).

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). The default value is "no".

FILES

conf.css

DIAGNOSTICS

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

BUGS

The JSON output flavour (FORMAT) is not implemented.
