The main purpose of bpluginfo is to display different information about Bareos plugin. You can use it to check a plugin name, author, license and short description. You can use -f option to display API implemented by the plugin. Some plugins may require additional '-a' option for validating a Bareos Daemons API. In most cases it is not required.

-h

-v

-i
Display short information from plugin header only. This is a default option. Option incompatible with -f option.
-f
Display information about implemented API functions.
-a <api>
You can supply the plugin initialization function with a particular Bareos API number. Without this option a default API number is '1'. Option require a numeric argument.
