fioctl config set

Create a new factory-wide configuration


Creates a factory wide configuration. The fioconfig daemon running on each device will then be able to grab the latest version of the configuration and the device’s configuration and apply it. Use the –group parameter to create a device group wide configuration instead.

fioctl config set file=content <file2=content ...> [flags]


# Basic use
fioctl config set npmtok="root" githubtok="1234"

There are several ways how to pass a file content into this command:
- with filename="filecontent" format, a file content is passed directly.
- with filename==/path/to/file format, a file content is read from a specified file path.

# The configuration format also allows specifying what command to
# run after a configuration file is updated on the device. To take
# advantage of this, the "--raw" flag must be used.
cat >tmp.json <<EOF

fioctl config set --raw ./tmp.json

# fioctl will read in tmp.json and upload it to the OTA server.
# Instead of using ./tmp.json, the command can take a "-" and will read the
# content from STDIN instead of a file.
