check-creds

check-creds

This is a stand-alone utility to help verify entries in creds.json.
The command does a trivia operation to verify credentials. If successful, a list of zones will be output (which may be an empty list). If the credentials or other problems prevent this operation from executing, the exit code will be non-zero and hopefully verbose error messages will be output.
Syntax:
​
dnscontrol check-creds [command options] credkey provider
​
--creds value Provider credentials JSON file (default: "creds.json")
--out value Instead of stdout, write to this file
​
ARGUMENTS:
credkey: The name used in creds.json (first parameter to NewDnsProvider() in dnsconfig.js)
provider: The name of the provider (second parameter to NewDnsProvider() in dnsconfig.js)
Starting in v3.16, "provider" is optional. If it is omitted (or the placeholder value - is used), the TYPE specified in creds.json will be used instead. A warning will be displayed with advice on how to remain compatible with v4.0.
Starting in v4.0, the "provider" argument is expected to go away.

Examples

dnscontrol check-creds myr53 ROUTE53
Starting in v3.16:
dnscontrol check-creds myr53
dnscontrol check-creds myr53 -
dnscontrol check-creds myr53 ROUTE53
Starting in v4.0:
dnscontrol check-creds myr53
This command is the same as get-zones with --format=nameonly

Developer Note

This command is not implemented for all providers.
To add this to a provider, implement the get-zones subcommand.
