CommandBox Config Settings

CommandBox has a global configuration file that stores user settings. It is located in ~/.CommandBox/CommandBox.json and can be used to customize core CommandBox behaviors as well as overriding module settings. Config settings are managed by the config set, config show, and config clear commands.

Set Config Settings

config set name=mySetting

Nested attributes may be set by specifying dot-delimited names or using array notation. If the set value is JSON, it will be stored as a complex value in the commandbox.json.

Set module setting

config set modules.myModule.mySetting=foo

Set item in an array

config set myArraySetting[1]="value"

Set multiple params at once

config set setting1=value1 setting2=value2 setting3=value3

Override a complex value as JSON

config set myArraySeting="[ 'test@test.com', 'me@example.com' ]"

Structs and arrays can be appended to using the "append" parameter. Add an additional settings to the existing list. This only works if the property and incoming value are both of the same complex type.

config set myArraySetting="[ 'another value' ]" --append

Show Config Settings

Output a setting:

config show settingName

Nested attributes may be accessed by specifying dot-delimited names or using array notation. If the accessed property is a complex value, the JSON representation will be displayed

config show modules.myModule.settingName
config show mySettingArray[1]

Clear Config Setting

To Remove a setting out of the CommandBox.json use the config clear command. Nested attributes may be set by specifying dot-delimited names or using array notation.
