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.
