This is a small project that tries to enable some basic GD tasks to be accessible through CLI. It is still work in progress. If you got something interesting in mind let me know at email@example.com
git clone git://github.com/fluke777/gd.git cd gd rake gem sudo gem install pkg/gd-0.0.1.gem
I tried to make this as easy to use as possible. You can get the list of commands by running
You can see that at this moment you can do numerous things
clone_project create_project create_user delete_user help list_domain_users list_roles list_users project_stash project_stash_add project_stash_default project_stash_remove set_role user_stash user_stash_add user_stash_default user_stash_remove validate
If you want further information about the command use help
gd help command
This should provide brief but useful information about usage of the command.
I tried to automate some typical tasks and tried to make the tool behave so it could be used in the UNIX way. I assume that credentials are set in a way you can read below in following examples.
Finding some useful information about a user by an email address is a snap (which cannot be said about UI)
gd list_users | grep firstname.lastname@example.org
You can easily find out how many people are there in the project
gd list_users | wc -l
How many people are there from the company by excluding gooddata users
gd list_users | grep -v gooddata.com
How many admins does the project sport?
gd list_users | cut -d, -f5 | grep adminRole | wc -l
Well this one may break if you got commas in names but yeah
Maybe you are interested in whether your project is valid
Since it is following the principle “Keep quiet if everything is ok” you should find out that it worked by inspecting the exit code
And some more .…
At the moment there are 3 global parameters that you need to provide for most commands to work. That is gooddata login, password and project. This is great for scripts but awkward for interactive use. You can set the current project and user credentials in stash so you can work more interactively and with less typing. I am thinking about moving project id from the global parameters since it is not usually needed so this might change in future releases.
You can add your account
gd user_stash_add email@example.com 1234
and it will ask you necessary questions. You can have more than one. In such case one is marked as default and that is the one that will be used. You can switch between those by using
Similarly you can use
The same is possible with projects with commands
gd project_stash_add gd project_stash_default gd project_stash_remove
Check help for details. You can list the stored values by (the default value is marked by asterisk)
gd project_stash gd user_stash
All this information is stored in ~/.gd and it is in plain JSON so you can edit it by hand if you please. Be aware that it is not encrypted in any way so if you are concerned about this stuff keep it in mind.
How you can help?
