couchbase-cli setting-security [--cluster <url>] [--username <user>] [--password <password>] [--disable-http-ui <0|1>]
Specifies the hostname of a node in the cluster. See the HOST FORMATS section for more information on specifying a hostname.
- --username <username>
Specifies the username of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permission to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error.
- --password <password>
Specifies the password of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permission to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error. If this argument is specified, but no password is given then the command will prompt the user for a password through non-echoed stdin. You may also specify your password by using the environment variable CB_REST_PASSWORD.
- --disable-http-ui <0|1>
Specifies whether the Couchbase Administration UI can be accessible over http. To disable access set this option to "1". To enable access set this option to "0". By default, access to the UI over http is enabled.
When specifying a host for the couchbase-cli command the following formats are expected:
It is recommended to use the couchbase://<addr> format for standard installations. The other two formats allow an option to take a port number which is needed for non-default installations where the admin port has been set up on a port other that 8091.
To disable the Couchbase Administration Console over HTTP run the following command.
$ couchbase-cli setting-security -c 192.168.1.5 -u Administrator \ -p password --disable-http-ui 1
Specifies the username to use when executing the command. This environment variable allows you to specify a default argument for the -u/--username argument on the command line.
Specifies the password of the user executing the command. This environment variable allows you to specify a default argument for the -p/--password argument on the command line. It also allows the user to ensure that their password are not cached in their command line history.
