bucket-list

List all buckets

SYNTAX

couchbase-cli bucket-list [--cluster <url>] [--username <user>]
          [--password <password>]

DESCRIPTION

Lists all buckets in the cluster. For each bucket, the following are printed to stdout: bucketType, authType, numReplicas, ramQuota, ramUsed.

OPTIONS

-c
--cluster

Specfies the hostname of a node in the cluster. See the HOST FORMATS section for more information on specifying a hostname.

-u
--user <username>

Specifies the username of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permision to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error.

-p
--password <password>

Specifies the password of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permision to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error. If this argument is specified, but no password is given then the command will prompt the user for a password through non-echoed stdin. You may also specify your password by using the environment variable CB_REST_PASSWORD.

HOST FORMATS

When specifying a host for the couchbase-cli command the following formats are expected:

  • couchbase://<addr>

  • <addr>:<port>

  • http://<addr>:<port>

It is recommended to use the couchbase://<addr> format for standard installations. The other two formats allow an option to take a port number which is needed for non-default installations where the admin port has been set up on a port other that 8091.

EXAMPLES

To list all buckets in the cluster, run the following command.

$ couchbase-cli bucket-list -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
 --password password
travel-data
 bucketType: membase
 authType: sasl
 numReplicas: 1
 ramQuota: 104857600
 ramUsed: 45302840
airline-data
 bucketType: ephemeral
 authType: sasl
 numReplicas: 1
 ramQuota: 268435456
 ramUsed: 1134432
flight-data
 bucketType: memcached
 authType: sasl
 numReplicas: 0
 ramQuota: 104857600
 ramUsed: 0

DISCUSSION

In the output, RAM figures are in bytes. The "membase" bucketType signifies a Couchbase bucket. The authType can be either "sasl" or "none".

ENVIRONMENT AND CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

CB_REST_PASSWORD Specifies the password of the user executing the command. This environment variable allows you to specify a default argument for the -p/--password argument on the command line. It also allows the user to ensure that their password are not cached in their command line history.
