SYNOPSISkdb get <path>
Where path is the full path to the key.
DESCRIPTIONThis command is used to retrieve the value of a key.
If you enter a path starting with a leading /, then a cascading lookup will be performed in order to attempt to locate the key.
In this case, using the -v option allows the user to see the full path of the key if it is found.
Note: There is a current limitation where only keys that are mounted will be considered during a cascading lookup.
A workaround that will lookup all keys is to pass the -a option.
Additionally, a user can use the command kdb ls <same key> to see if an override or a fallback will be considered by the lookup.
- -H, --help
- Show the man page.
- -V, --version
- Print version info.
- -a, --all
- Consider all of the keys.
- -n, --no-newline
- Suppress the newline at the end of the output.
- -v, --verbose
- Explain what is happening. Gives a complete trace of all tried keys.
EXAMPLESTo get the value of a key:
kdb get user/example/key
To get the value of a key using a cascading lookup:
kdb get /example/key
To get the value of a key without adding a newline to the end of it: kdb get -n /example/key
To explain why a specific key was used (for cascading keys): kdb get -v /example/key
