ec validate input

Validate arbitrary JSON or yaml file input conformance with the Enterprise Contract

Synopsis

Validate conformance of arbitrary JSON or yaml file input with the Enterprise Contract

For each file, validation is performed to determine if the file conforms to rego policies defined in the the EnterpriseContractPolicy.

ec validate input [flags]

Examples

Use an EnterpriseContractPolicy spec from a local YAML file to validate a single file ec validate input --file /path/to/file.json --policy my-policy.yaml

Use an EnterpriseContractPolicy spec from a local YAML file to validate multiple files The file flag can be repeated for multiple input files. ec validate input --file /path/to/file.yaml --file /path/to/file2.yaml --policy my-policy.yaml

Use an EnterpriseContractPolicy spec from a local YAML file to validate multiple files The file flag can take a comma separated series of files. ec validate input --file="/path/to/file.json,/path/to/file2.json" --policy my-policy.yaml

Use a git url for the policy configuration. In the first example there should be a '.ec/policy.yaml' or a 'policy.yaml' inside a directory called 'default' in the top level of the git repo. In the second example there should be a '.ec/policy.yaml' or a 'policy.yaml' file in the top level of the git repo. For git repos not hosted on 'github.com' or 'gitlab.com', prefix the url with 'git::'. For the policy configuration files you can use json instead of yaml if you prefer.

ec validate input --file /path/to/file.json --policy github.com/user/repo//default?ref=main
ec validate input --file /path/to/file.yaml --policy github.com/user/repo

Options

--effective-time

Run policy checks with the provided time. Useful for testing rules with effective dates in the future. The value can be "now" (default) - for current time, or a RFC3339 formatted value, e.g. 2022-11-18T00:00:00Z. (Default: now)

--f, --file

path to input YAML/JSON file (required) (Default: [])

--h, --help

help for input (Default: false)

--info

Include additional information on the failures. For instance for policy violations, include the title and the description of the failed policy rule. (Default: false)

--o, --output

Write output to a file in a specific format, e.g. yaml=/tmp/output.yaml. Use empty string path for stdout, e.g. yaml. May be used multiple times. Possible formats are json, yaml, and summary (Default: [])

--p, --policy

Policy configuration as:

  • file (policy.yaml)

  • git reference (github.com/user/repo//default?ref=main), or

  • inline JSON ('{sources: {…​}, configuration: {…​}}')")

--s, --strict

Return non-zero status on non-successful validation (Default: true)

Options inherited from parent commands

--debug

same as verbose but also show function names and line numbers (Default: false)

--kubeconfig

path to the Kubernetes config file to use

--quiet

less verbose output (Default: false)

--show-successes

(Default: false)

--timeout
