I was trying to update my IPs using flyctl ips . I realized I had some cases where I had to specify a different fly.toml file.
The --config <filename.toml> option is what I needed. But it’s strangely hidden in the docs. eg it exists in the
fly deploy docs, but not in
fly ips docs fly ips · Fly Docs, not in the flyctl --help, etc.
Is there a reason these flags aren’t easier to find?
Hi @nilsbunger ! The
--config option is part of the sub-commands under
fly ips. For instance,
fly ips list --config other-fly.toml.
The flag is documented in the docs for the sub-commands, for the
list command will be ips-list
You are right that if I do
fly ips list --help , the config flag can be found there.
I struggled to find it though - I was looking at
fly ips --help and the web instructions for
fly ips without noticing I could click into each subcommand.
Since --config applies to so many commands I think I was expecting to see it at the top level or at least at a
fly ips level (since it should apply to all fly ip commands).
Anyway, thanks for the help.
