» Identifying Binding Rules

Several of the subcommands need to operate on a specific binding rule. Those subcommands support specifying the binding rule by its ID using the -id parameter.

When specifying the binding rule by its ID a unique binding rule ID prefix may be specified instead of the entire UUID. As long as it is unique it will be resolved to the full UUID and used.

» Basic Examples

Create a new binding rule:

$ consul acl binding-rule create \
      -method=minikube \
      -bind-type=service \
      -bind-name='k8s-${serviceaccount.name}' \
      -selector='serviceaccount.namespace==default and serviceaccount.name==web'

List all binding rules:

$ consul acl binding-rule list

Update a binding rule:

$ consul acl binding-rule update -id=43cb72df-9c6f-4315-ac8a-01a9d98155ef \

Read a binding rule:

$ consul acl binding-rule read -id fdabbcb5-9de5-4b1a-961f-77214ae88cba

Delete a binding rule:

$ consul acl binding-rule delete -id b6b856da-5193-4e78-845a-7d61ca8371ba
