The enfcli - Xaptum's CLI tool - allows you to easily manage your ENF resources. Check out the docs for examples of the various enfcli commands available for you to use.


To install enfcli release versions of the gem run

$ gem install enfcli

To update existing enfcli installation to latest release version

$ gem update enfcli

To install enfcli pre-release verions

$ gem install enfcli --pre


There are two ways to connect to the ENF through the enfcli.

  1. Configuration file

    The recommended way to connect to the ENF through the enfcli is by creating a configuration file (.xaptum_config.json) in your home directory. The enfcli will read your configuration from this file whenever you attempt to connect, and will save you from entering in your host and username parameters each time. The following command creates a config file in your home directory.

    $ enfcli create-config-file --host=<HOST> --user=<USERNAME>
    Config file created successfully at /Users/dylanirlbeck/.xaptum_config.json!

    You can view your current configuration at any time by doing the following:

    $ enfcli display-config-file

    With your configuration file created, connect to the ENF by simply doing

    $ enfcli
    Connecting to <HOST>.....
    Enter Password: <PASSWORD>
  2. CLI parameters

    Instead of a configuration file, you can always connect to the ENF through the enfcli by providing your host and username as command line parameters

    $ enfcli --host <host> --user <user>

Whichever way you choose, you'll be prompted for your account password as the final step of authentication. Once authenticated, type help in enfcli prompt to list all available enfcli commands

enfcli pre-release and release versions are automatically published to RubyGems by the build process. Each commit to master branch publishes a pre-release version of the gem.

Publishing Pre-Release version

  • Open a pull request to merge the feature branch into master
  • After review and approval merge feature branch into master
  • The build process publishes a pre-release version if gem version matches one of the following patterns:

Publishing a Release version

  • Update enfcli version to MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH in lib/enfcli/version.rb and commit the change to master
  • Create and push a tag with the same name as the version
  • The build process publishes a release version of the gem
