aliases

If the server administrator has restricted access to server paths for security reasons, you can no longer run comparisons that refer server file paths directly, see also Restricting Access to Server Paths. Instead, you need to specify the name of an alias by means of the --alias option.

 

This command outputs all the aliases defined on the server side. The output of this command depends on the value of the hide-alias-paths option in the server configuration file. If hide-alias-paths=false, the output displays all aliases along with the paths they reference. Otherwise, the command returns just the list of configured aliases.

 

You can also call this command by typing list-aliases instead of aliases.

 

Syntax

DiffDogCmdlClient aliases

 

On Linux, use an all-lowercase to call the executable. In addition, on Linux and macOS, you might need to add the prefix "./" before the name of the executable when calling it from the current directory of the command shell.

 

Options

--config, --c

This option specifies the path to a client configuration file where the connection details to DiffDog Server are defined.

 

If you do not set the --c option, the DiffDog Command Line Client executable attempts to read the client configuration file from the same directory. If there is no configuration file in the same directory as the executable, the default values as described in the command line help and this documentation apply.

 

--port

This option specifies the port on which DiffDog Server listens for requests. Setting this option is meaningful if DiffDog Server runs on a port other than the default 29800. As an alternative to setting this option at the command line, you can set it in the Client Configuration File. Note that, if you set this value at the command line, it takes precedence over the one defined in the configuration file.

 

--server

This option specifies the server address on which DiffDog Server listens for requests. Setting this option is meaningful if DiffDog Server runs on a server other than the default localhost. As an alternative to setting this option at the command line, you can set it in the Client Configuration File. Note that, if you set this value at the command line, it takes precedence over the one defined in the configuration file.
