SALT-SSH(1) Salt SALT-SSH(1)

salt-ssh - salt-ssh Documentation

salt-ssh '*' [ options ] sys.doc
salt-ssh -E '.*' [ options ] sys.doc cmd


Salt SSH allows for salt routines to be executed using only SSH for transport

--version
Print the version of Salt that is running.

--versions-report
Show program's dependencies and version number, and then exit

-h, --help
Show the help message and exit

-c CONFIG_DIR, --config-dir=CONFIG_dir
The location of the Salt configuration directory. This directory contains the configuration files for Salt master and minions. The default location on most systems is /etc/salt.

--hard-crash
Raise any original exception rather than exiting gracefully. Default: False.

-r, --raw, --raw-shell
Execute a raw shell command.

--roster
Define which roster system to use, this defines if a database backend, scanner, or custom roster system is used. Default is the flat file roster.

--roster-file
Define an alternative location for the default roster file location. The default roster file is called roster and is found in the same directory as the master config file.
New in version 2014.1.0.

--refresh, --refresh-cache
Force a refresh of the master side data cache of the target's data. This is needed if a target's grains have been changed and the auto refresh timeframe has not been reached.

--max-procs
Set the number of concurrent minions to communicate with. This value defines how many processes are opened up at a time to manage connections, the more running process the faster communication should be, default is 25.

--extra-filerefs=EXTRA_FILEREFS
Pass in extra files to include in the state tarball.

--min-extra-modules=MIN_EXTRA_MODS
One or comma-separated list of extra Python modulesto be included into Minimal Salt.

--thin-extra-modules=THIN_EXTRA_MODS
One or comma-separated list of extra Python modulesto be included into Thin Salt.

-v, --verbose
Turn on command verbosity, display jid.

-s, --static
Return the data from minions as a group after they all return.

-w, --wipe
Remove the deployment of the salt files when done executing.

-W, --rand-thin-dir
Select a random temp dir to deploy on the remote system. The dir will be cleaned after the execution.

-t, --regen-thin, --thin
Trigger a thin tarball regeneration. This is needed if custom grains/modules/states have been added or updated.

--python2-bin=PYTHON2_BIN
Path to a python2 binary which has salt installed.

--python3-bin=PYTHON3_BIN
Path to a python3 binary which has salt installed.

--jid=JID
Pass a JID to be used instead of generating one.

--priv=SSH_PRIV
Specify the SSH private key file to be used for authentication.

-i, --ignore-host-keys
By default ssh host keys are honored and connections will ask for approval. Use this option to disable StrictHostKeyChecking.

--no-host-keys
Fully ignores ssh host keys which by default are honored and connections would ask for approval. Useful if the host key of a remote server has changed and would still error with --ignore-host-keys.

--user=SSH_USER
Set the default user to attempt to use when authenticating.

--passwd
Set the default password to attempt to use when authenticating.

--askpass
Interactively ask for the SSH password with no echo - avoids password in process args and stored in history.

--key-deploy
Set this flag to attempt to deploy the authorized ssh key with all minions. This combined with --passwd can make initial deployment of keys very fast and easy.

--identities-only
Use the only authentication identity files configured in the ssh_config files. See IdentitiesOnly flag in man ssh_config.

--sudo
Run command via sudo.

--scan-ports=SSH_SCAN_PORTS
Comma-separated list of ports to scan in the scan roster.

--scan-timeout=SSH_SCAN_TIMEOUT
Scanning socket timeout for the scan roster.

Logging options which override any settings defined on the configuration files.
-l LOG_LEVEL, --log-level=LOG_LEVEL
Console logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error, quiet. Default: warning.

--log-file=LOG_FILE
Log file path. Default: /var/log/salt/ssh.

--log-file-level=LOG_LEVEL_LOGFILE
Logfile logging log level. One of all, garbage, trace, debug, info, warning, error, quiet. Default: warning.

The default matching that Salt utilizes is shell-style globbing around the minion id. See https://docs.python.org/2/library/fnmatch.html#module-fnmatch.
-E, --pcre
The target expression will be interpreted as a PCRE regular expression rather than a shell glob.

--out
Pass in an alternative outputter to display the return of data. This outputter can be any of the available outputters:
grains, highstate, json, key, overstatestage, pprint, raw, txt, yaml


Some outputters are formatted only for data returned from specific functions; for instance, the grains outputter will not work for non-grains data.
If an outputter is used that does not support the data passed into it, then Salt will fall back on the pprint outputter and display the return data using the Python pprint standard library module.
NOTE:
If using --out=json, you will probably want --static as well. Without the static option, you will get a separate JSON string per minion which makes JSON output invalid as a whole. This is due to using an iterative outputter. So if you want to feed it to a JSON parser, use --static as well.



--out-indent OUTPUT_INDENT, --output-indent OUTPUT_INDENT
Print the output indented by the provided value in spaces. Negative values disable indentation. Only applicable in outputters that support indentation.

--out-file=OUTPUT_FILE, --output-file=OUTPUT_FILE
Write the output to the specified file.

--out-file-append, --output-file-append
Append the output to the specified file.

--no-color
Disable all colored output

--force-color
Force colored output
NOTE:
When using colored output the color codes are as follows:
green denotes success, red denotes failure, blue denotes changes and success and yellow denotes a expected future change in configuration.



--state-output=STATE_OUTPUT, --state_output=STATE_OUTPUT
Override the configured state_output value for minion output. One of 'full', 'terse', 'mixed', 'changes' or 'filter'. Default: 'none'.

--state-verbose=STATE_VERBOSE, --state_verbose=STATE_VERBOSE
Override the configured state_verbose value for minion output. Set to True or False. Default: none.
