feat: let CLI users pass a JSON list (as a string) to set an asset or sensor attribute #762

merged 3 commits into from Jul 19, 2023


Copy link


We have the flexmeasures edit attribute CLI command.

It allows to edit attribute values of several types on assets and sensors: float, bool, str, int.
We are handling lists as attribute values, as well (e.g. generic_asset.sensors_to_show), and are thinking about dictionaries.

This PR is about supporting these two types in the CLI command, as well.

Look & Feel

flexmeasures edit attribute --asset-id 27 --attribute "sensors_to_show" --list '[14, 54, 55,56]'

How to test

Edit an attribute and check in the CLI or SQL if the attribute has changed:

  • flexmeasures show asset --id 27
  • select * from generic_asset where id = 27

Also pass in wrong (non parseable) values

Further Improvements

Still need to support dicts, but that could happen in the same way easily.
