The config commands are used for managing container configuration. The configuration data is edited in two stages. First the changes are queued until they are dynamically loaded into the container by executing the config:update command. A copy of the configuration is persisted to the file system in the container's etc folder.
When editing a configuration the commands are used as follows:
  1. Start the editing session for the specified configuration.
  2. Edits, or creates, a configuration.
    • config:proplist
      Lists the properties in the configuration.
    • config:propappend
      Append a new property to the configuration.
    • config:propset
      Sets the value for a configuration property.
    • config:propdel
      Deletes a property from the configuration.
  3. config:update
    Saves the changes and updates the containers using the configuration.
You can abandon an editing session using config:cancel.
Type config: then press Tab at the prompt to view the available commands.

config:cancel [ --help ]


When editing a configuration, the changes are buffered until the editing session is closed. The config:cancel command clears the buffer without saving the changes and closes the editing session.
You can see a list of the buffered changes using the jaas:pending command.
