git-secret-reveal - Man Page

decrypts all added files.


git secret reveal [-f] [-F] [-P] [-v] [-d dir] [-p password] [pathspec]...


git-secret-reveal - decrypts passed files, or all files considered secret by git-secret.

Under the hood, reveal uses the gpg --decrypt command and your private key (typically from your personal keyring in your home directory) to decrypt files.

Therefore, for this operation to succeed, your personal keyring must contain a private key matching one of the public keys which were used to encrypt the secrets -- i.e., one of the public keys in your repo´s git-secret keyring when the file was encrypted.


-f  - forces gpg to overwrite existing files without prompt.
-F  - forces reveal to continue even if a file fails to decrypt.
-d  - specifies `--homedir` option for the `gpg`, basically use this option if you store your keys in a custom location.
-v  - verbose, shows extra information.
-p  - specifies password for noinput mode, adds `--passphrase` option for `gpg`.
-P  - preserve permissions of encrypted file in unencrypted file.
-h  - shows help.
