Add and edit groups in batch mode

fyde-cli supports adding and editing groups in batch mode, importing data from JSON or CSV files. Batch operations on groups use the common batch mode flags.

JSON files should contain an array of objects, each containing the fields for each group one wishes to add or edit.

CSV files should be comma-separated. They must contain a header, specifying the fields and their order, followed by the records (one per line).

When editing groups, unspecified non-mandatory fields remain unchanged.

Fields

The expected fields for each format are as follows:

JSON field name JSON type CSV field name Example Description Mandatory
id integer ID 123 ID of the group to edit.
Used only when editing
When editing
name string Name QA Name of the group When adding
description string Description Quality Assurance personnel Description of the group No
color string Color #FF0088 Color of the group, in HTML hex notation (must include the #) No

File examples

Note: field order can be different from what is shown in the examples, and non-mandatory fields can be omitted. When using CSV, make sure to specify the correct field order in the header, and to maintain the order and number of fields consistent throughout each line.
