» Command: job revert

The job revert command is used to revert a job to a prior version of the job. The available versions to revert to can be found using job history command.

The revert command will use a Vault token with the following preference: first the -vault-token flag, then the $VAULT_TOKEN environment variable. Because the vault token used to run the targeted job version was not persisted, it must be provided to revert if the targeted job version includes Vault policies and the Nomad servers were configured to require authentication.

» Usage

nomad job revert [options] <job> <version>

The job revert command requires two inputs, the job ID and the version of that job to revert to.

» General Options

  • -address=<addr>: The address of the Nomad server. Overrides the NOMAD_ADDR environment variable if set. Defaults to http://127.0.0.1:4646.

  • -region=<region>: The region of the Nomad server to forward commands to. Overrides the NOMAD_REGION environment variable if set. Defaults to the Agent's local region.

  • -no-color: Disables colored command output. Alternatively, NOMAD_CLI_NO_COLOR may be set.

  • -ca-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded CA cert file to use to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. Overrides the NOMAD_CACERT environment variable if set.

  • -ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. If both -ca-cert and -ca-path are specified, -ca-cert is used. Overrides the NOMAD_CAPATH environment variable if set.

  • -client-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded client certificate for TLS authentication to the Nomad server. Must also specify -client-key. Overrides the NOMAD_CLIENT_CERT environment variable if set.

  • -client-key=<path>: Path to an unencrypted PEM encoded private key matching the client certificate from -client-cert. Overrides the NOMAD_CLIENT_KEY environment variable if set.

  • -tls-skip-verify: Do not verify TLS certificate. This is highly not recommended. Verification will also be skipped if NOMAD_SKIP_VERIFY is set.

  • -token: The SecretID of an ACL token to use to authenticate API requests with. Overrides the NOMAD_TOKEN environment variable if set.

» Revert Options

  • -detach: Return immediately instead of monitoring. A new evaluation ID will be output, which can be used to examine the evaluation using the eval status command

  • -vault-token: If set, the passed Vault token is sent along with the revert request to the Nomad servers. This overrides the token found in the $VAULT_TOKEN environment variable.

  • -verbose: Show full information.
