Relevant Installation Types

  • Traditional standalone server (unzipped or provisioned by Galleon)

  • Managed domain

  • OpenShift s2i

  • Bootable jar

Requirements

Provide a management operation to export the configuration of a running server as an XML data stream to avoid content being escaped. This operation should replace the existing 'read-config-as-xml' operation without the escaping issues. It should work for a standalone server as for a domain server.

Hard Requirements

  • Export the current running configuration as an XML data stream that can be saved or displayed with the attachment operation from the CLI.

  • Since the full configuration is read, the operation should fail if the user is not in a role that allows reading sensitive data.

Implementation Plan

Simple usage:

[standalone@localhost:9990 /] :read-config-as-xml-file
{
"outcome" => "success",
"result" => {"uuid" => "89c858bf-dba4-4d38-8b8c-93e13beaacca"},
"response-headers" => {"attached-streams" => [{
"uuid" => "89c858bf-dba4-4d38-8b8c-93e13beaacca",
"mime-type" => "application/xml"
}]}
}

To display the content of the file:

[standalone@localhost:9990 /] attachment display --operation=:read-config-as-xml-file
ATTACHMENT 3363018e-1a79-401a-a865-97d85c83f5f4:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
...

Test Plan

  • Add a test "testReadConfigAsXmlFile" into the class org.wildfly.core.test.standalone.mgmt.api.CoreServerTestCase in the standalone testsuite to check that the result of the operation is the same as the "standalone.xml" file used to start the server.

  • Add several tests to the class org.jboss.as.test.integration.domain.ManagementReadXmlTestCase in the domain testsuite:

    • testDomainReadConfigAsXml : check that the result of the operation is the same as the "domain-standard.xml" file used to start the server.

    • testHostReadConfigAsXml : check that the result of the operation is the same as the "host-master.xml" and "host-slave.xml" files used to start the hosts.

  • Add a test to the class org.jboss.as.test.integration.mgmt.access.StandardRolesBasicTestCase in the rbac testsuite:

    • readWholeConfigAsXMLFile
