      SYNOPSIS

      couchbase-cli setting-alternate-address [--cluster <url>] [--username <user>] [--password <password>]
          [--client-cert <path>] [--client-cert-password <password>] [--client-key <path>]
          [--client-key-password <password>] [--list] [--set] [--remove] [--hostname <host>]
          [--ports <ports>]

      DESCRIPTION

      This command is used to set the alternate address for a node. This alternate address allows the node to be connected by a different address, this is useful when an external agent tries to connect via a NAT’d environment such as the cloud or kubernetes.

      OPTIONS

      -c
      --cluster

      Specifies the hostname of a node in the cluster. See the HOST FORMATS section for more information on specifying a hostname.

      -u
      --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.

      -p
      --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.

      --client-cert <path>

      The path to a client certificate used to authenticate when connecting to a cluster. May be supplied with --client-key as an alternative to the --username and --password flags. See the CERTIFICATE AUTHENTICATION section for more information.

      --client-cert-password <password>

      The password for the certificate provided to the --client-cert flag, when using this flag, the certificate/key pair is expected to be in the PKCS#12 format. See the CERTIFICATE AUTHENTICATION section for more information.

      --client-key <path>

      The path to the client private key whose public key is contained in the certificate provided to the --client-cert flag. May be supplied with --client-cert as an alternative to the --username and --password flags. See the CERTIFICATE AUTHENTICATION section for more information.

      --client-key-password <password>

      The password for the key provided to the --client-key flag, when using this flag, the key is expected to be in the PKCS#8 format. See the CERTIFICATE AUTHENTICATION section for more information.

      --list

      Show current alternate addresses. Please note only the first 43 characters hostname and alternate address are displayed. The full hostnames are shown in the json output (-o json).

      --set

      Set alternate address for the node specified in the -c/--cluster option.

      --remove

      Remove alternate address for the node specified in the -c/--cluster option.

      --node <node>

      The node in the cluster to take action on. This is required when using --set or --remove flags.

      --hostname <host>

      Alternate host address

      --ports <port>

      Alternate port mappings. Specified as a comma separated list: e.g. --ports kv=9000,kvSSL=9999.

      HOST FORMATS

      When specifying a host for the couchbase-cli command the following formats are expected:

      • couchbase://<addr>

      • <addr>:<port>

      • http://<addr>:<port>

      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.

      CERTIFICATE AUTHENTICATION (MTLS AUTHENTICATION)

      This tool supports authenticating against a Couchbase Cluster by using certificate based authentication (mTLS authentication). To use certificate based authentication a certificate/key must be supplied, there a currently multiple ways this may be done.

      PEM ENCODED CERTIFICATE/KEY

      An unencrypted PEM encoded certificate/key may be supplied by using: - --client-cert <path> - --client-key <path>

      The file passed to --client-cert must contain the client certificate, and an optional chain required to authenticate the client certificate.

      The file passed to --client-key must contain at most one private key, the key can be in one of the following formats: - PKCS#1 - PKCS#8

      Currently, only the following key types are supported: - RSA - DSA

      PEM ENCODED CERTIFICATE/PEM OR DER ENCRYPTED PKCS#8 KEY

      An encrypted PKCS#8 formatted key may be provided using: - --client-cert <path> - --client-key <path> - --client-key-password <password>

      The file passed to --client-cert must contain the client certificate, and an optional chain required to authenticate the client certificate.

      Currently, only the following key types are supported: - RSA - DSA

      ENCRYPTED PKCS#12 CERTIFICATE/KEY

      An encrypted PKCS#12 certificate/key may be provided using: - --client-cert <path> - --client-cert-password <password>

      The file passed to --client-cert must contain the client certificate and exactly one private key. It may also contain the chain required to authenticate the client certificate.

      Currently, only the following key types are supported: - RSA - DSA

      EXAMPLES

      To set the alternate address and custom ports for node 192.168.1.5 we would use the following command:

      $ couchbase-cli setting-alternate-address -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
         --password password --set --node 192.168.1.5 --hostname 10.10.10.10 \
         --ports mgmt=1100,capi=2000,capiSSL=3000

      To see the current alternate address configuration we would use the --list flag as follows:

      $ couchbase-cli setting-alternate-address -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
         --password password --list
