Install a figcli config file that contains examples to help with setup. The root figcli config directory is $HOME/.config/fig on linux and $HOME/Library/Application Support/fig on mac. The figcli config for the directory you are currently (ex. ~/code/app-identity) is contained in <OS specific config root>/fig/app-identity/ This default configuration is perfect for repos with a single application deployment. The default.toml can be copied to subproject1.toml to configure an application by name. When you want to reference something other than default in a figcli command, you must use the optional global parameter of --config or -c (-c subproject1). Using multiples of this scheme with different names allows you to have any number of referenceable configurations. Note: Once running this you can edit the configuration file and fill in the correct values.

$ figcli config init

List available configurations for the current directory

$ cd src/
$ figcli config list


Edit the provenance.toml configuration file

$ figcli -c provenance config edit  # will use $EDITOR

Drop into a psql shell in the test environment (default configuration file)

$ figcli psql test --shell

Drop into a psql shell in the test environment for the non default configuration

$ figcli -c provenance psql test --shell

Start a local pgbouncer and print the postgresql connection string that can be used to connect with a third party Postgres query application. Pgbouncer is used so that the username and password do not have to be used. This provides a simple way to have a third party Postgres application configured without having to fetch and input the ever expiring Google Cloud SQL credentials in Vault. The --port flag is used so a static predefined port can be used instead of finding a randomly available one.

$ figcli psql test --port 65432

Towards 1.0

  • psql command - seamless vault and devops.figure.com for credential management
  • init command - generate the majority of the toml config file based on parsing the project
  • exec command?
  • log command?
  • port-forward command?
