Can an instance be registered with Nuxeo Connect via the command line?
I'm trying to write a shell script to deploy development instances of our repository, instead of bothering developers with clicking through a how-to document and following the wizard's prompts.
I didn't see anything in the documentation or the answers.nuxeo.com forum about this.
There's a NuxeoCtl improvement planned about that: see NXP-11842. There are small chances to have it before the 5.8 release, but maybe for the Nuxeo 5.9.1. That would be useful indeed.
Waiting for that, you can still copy a previously generated registration file (ie: all instances will share the same registration, that is only viable for development instances, not for production): the file is named
instance.clid and is located at the root of the data directory (usually
nxserver/data for a development instance).
Today this is not available. If there is sufficient demand, especially from a customer having a support contract ;-), we'll add it.
