mc replicate import

Syntax

The mc replicate import command imports JSON-formatted replication rules for a MinIO bucket from STDIN.

The following command imports the replication configuration for the mydata bucket on the myminio MinIO deployment:

mc replicate import myminio/mydata < mydata-replication.json

The command has the following syntax:

mc [GLOBALFLAGS] import ALIAS
  • Brackets [] indicate optional parameters.

  • Parameters sharing a line are mutually dependent.

  • Parameters seperated using the pipe | operator are mutually exclusive.

Copy the example to a text editor and modify as-needed before running the command in the terminal/shell.

Parameters

ALIAS

Required the alias of the MinIO deployment and full path to the bucket or bucket prefix for which to import the replication rules. For example:

mc replicate import myminio/mybucket

Global Flags

--debug
Optional

Enables verbose output to the console.

For example:

mc --debug COMMAND
--config-dir
Optional

The path to a JSON formatted configuration file that mc uses for storing data. See Configuration File for more information on how mc uses the configuration file.

--JSON
Optional

Enables JSON lines formatted output to the console.

For example:

mc --JSON COMMAND
--no-color
Optional

Disables the built-in color theme for console output. Useful for dumb terminals.

--quiet
Optional

Suppresses console output.

--insecure
Optional

Disables TLS/SSL certificate verification. Allows TLS connectivity to servers with invalid certificates. Exercise caution when using this option against untrusted S3 hosts.

--version
Optional

Displays the current version of mc.

--help
Optional

Displays a summary of command usage on the terminal.

Examples

Import Existing Replication Rules

Use mc replicate import to import bucket replication rules:

mc replicate import ALIAS/PATH < bucket-replication-rules.json
  • Replace ALIAS with the alias of the MinIO deployment.

  • Replace PATH with the path to the bucket or bucket prefix.

Behavior

Importing Configuration Overrides Existing Rules

mc replicate import replaces the current bucket replication rules with those defined in the imported JSON configuration.

S3 Compatibility

The mc commandline tool is built for compatibility with the AWS S3 API and is tested MinIO and AWS S3 for expected functionality and behavior.

MinIO provides no guarantees for other S3-compatible services, as their S3 API implementation is unknown and therefore unsupported. While mc commands may work as documented, any such usage is at your own risk.
