ec opa exec

Execute against input files== Synopsis

Execute against input files.

The 'exec' command executes OPA against one or more input files. If the paths refer to directories, OPA will execute against files contained inside those directories, recursively.

The 'exec' command accepts a --config-file/-c or series of --set options as arguments. These options behave the same as way as 'opa run'. Since the 'exec' command is intended to execute OPA in one-shot, the 'exec' command will manually trigger plugins before and after policy execution:

Before: Discovery → Bundle → Status After: Decision Logs

By default, the 'exec' command executes the "default decision" (specified in the OPA configuration) against each input file. This can be overridden by specifying the --decision argument and pointing at a specific policy decision, e.g., opa exec --decision /foo/bar/baz …​

Alternative Usage: documentation exec [<path> […​]] --stdin-input [flags]

ec opa exec <path> [<path> [...]] [flags]
