Configuring the CLI¶
Where is stateful configuration stored?¶
The F5 CLI stores configuration settings and credentials in the user’s home directory inside a folder called
.f5_cli. There are a number of files in this folder. Below you can see a description for each of these files and an example of information typically found in each one.
auth.yaml - Authentication information such as credentials used by the CLI
- name: bigip1 host: 192.0.2.10 authentication-type: bigip password: mypassword1 port: 443 username: myuser1 default: true - name: bigip2 host: 192.0.2.11 authentication-type: bigip password: mypassword2 port: 443 username: myuser2 default: false - name: cs1 password: mypassword3 authentication-type: cs username: firstname.lastname@example.org default: true
config.yaml - Configuration settings used by the CLI
Typically changing configuration settings in these files is done using the F5 CLI directly, however for advanced use cases it may be a requirement to change the settings directly in these files.
The F5 CLI is currently in early development and we want to hear from you! To provide feedback on F5 CLI or this documentation, you can file a GitHub Issue.
