upgrade

Apply all needed schema/acl/content updates (will ask for version to upgrade from)

create

Create the database.

drop

Drop the database.  This will ERASE ALL YOUR DATA.

schema

To use a local or supplementary datafile, specify it using the '--datadir' option below.

acl

Initialize only the database ACLs

To use a local or supplementary datafile, specify it using the '--datadir' option below.

coredata

Insert data into RT's database. This data is required for normal functioning of any RT instance.

insert

Insert data into RT's database.  By default, will use RT's installation data. To use a local or supplementary datafile, specify it using the '--datafile' option below.

datafile

file path of the data you want to action on

e.g. "--datafile /path/to/datafile"

datadir

Used to specify a path to find the local database schema and acls to be installed.

e.g. "--datadir /path/to/"

dba

dba's username

dba-password

dba's password

prompt-for-dba-password

Ask for the database administrator's password interactively

skip-create

for 'init': skip creating the database and the user account, so we don't need administrator privileges

root-password-file

for 'init' and 'insert': rather than using the default administrative password for RT's "root" user, use the password in this file.

package

the name of the entity performing a create or upgrade. Used for logging changes in the DB. Defaults to RT, otherwise it should be the fully qualified package name of the extension or plugin making changes to the DB.

ext-version

current version of extension making a change. Not needed for RT since RT has a more elaborate system to track upgrades across multiple versions.

upgrade-from

for 'upgrade': specifies the version to upgrade from, and do not prompt for it if it appears to be a valid version.

upgrade-to

for 'upgrade': specifies the version to upgrade to, and do not prompt for it if it appears to be a valid version.
