Configure (advanced)

Custom CA bundle

You can specify a custom CA bundle for the connection to a Pulp server by providing a path in one of the following environment variables (ordered by precedence): PULP_CA_BUNDLE ,REQUESTS_CA_BUNDLE CURL_CA_BUNDLE

Shell Completion

The CLI uses the click package which supports shell completion. To configure this, check out click's documentation. As an example, here is what to add to your ~/.bashrc file if you're using bash:

eval "$(LC_ALL=C _PULP_COMPLETE=bash_source pulp)"


When using click<8.0.0 the command instead reads:

eval "$(LC_ALL=C _PULP_COMPLETE=source_bash pulp)"

Interactive shell mode

  • To use the shell mode, you need to install the the extra requirements tagged "shell". *

Starting the CLI with "pulp shell" drops you into the shell:

(pulp) [vagrant@pulp3 ~]$ pulp shell
Starting Pulp3 interactive shell...
pulp> help

Documented commands (type help <topic>):
access-policy  config     export    group      orphans     rpm     task
ansible        container  exporter  importer   python      show    user
artifact       debug      file      migration  repository  status  worker

Undocumented commands:
exit  help  quit

pulp> status

pulp> exit
(pulp) [vagrant@pulp3 ~]$

Issuing the command with arguments works as it does currently:

(pulp) [vagrant@pulp3 ~]$ pulp status
(pulp) [vagrant@pulp3 ~]$
