tscli command reference

The ThoughtSpot command line interface, or tscli, is an administration interface for the cluster. Use tscli to take snapshots (backups) of data, to apply updates, to stop and to start services, and to view information about the system. This reference defines each subcommand.

The command returns 0 code on success, and a non-zero exit code on failure. The tscli command logs errors to the stderr directory.

This section has the following content:

Using the tscli command

The tscli command has the following syntax:

tscli [-h]
      [--helpfull]
      [--verbose]
      [--noautoconfig]
      [--autoconfig]
      [--yes]
      [--cluster ]

       set,smtp,snapshot,snapshot-policy,socialproof,ssl,sssd,storage,support,
       tokenauthentication,update}

The tscli command has several subcommands, such as alert, backup, and so on.

Issue subcommands using the following format:

tscli [subcommand]

Subcommands have their own additional options and actions, such as tscli backup create or tscli backup delete.

Each subcommand may have several options. When a subcommand option is of the form tscli subcommand --flag FLAG, it requires a specific input from the user. For example, the command tscli access list --type TYPE, where you want a list of pinboards, takes the form tscli access list type pinboard.

To view help for a subcommand, type -h after the subcommand option:

tscli [subcommand] -h

Unix-Command to run on the selected logs. Use single quotes to escape spaces and other common characters. Note the language used to specify CMDSTR has the following rules:

  • A logfile and its corresponding result file can be referred to by the keywords SRCFILE and DSTFILE. For example, cp SRCFILE DSTFILE.

  • Without any reference to DSTFILE in CMDSTR, DSTFILE will be appended to CMDSTR for output redirection. For example, du -sch SRCFILE gets auto-translated to du -sch SRCFILE > DSTFILE.

--cmd_outfmt CMD_OUTFMT

Specify if OUTFILE generated by CMD should be compressed or uncompressed. Use C for compressed, and U for uncompressed. Don’t use this flag if output file is of the same format as the input file.
