»Command: volume snapshot list

The volume snapshot list command lists volume snapshots known to to a Container Storage Interface (CSI) storage provider. Only CSI plugins that implement the [Controller][csi_plugins_internals] interface support this command.


nomad volume snapshot list [-plugin plugin_id]

The volume snapshot list command returns a list of snapshots along with their source volume ID as known to the external storage provider. This is not the same as the Nomad volume ID, as the source volume may not be registered with Nomad.

»General Options

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

  • -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.

  • -namespace=<namespace>: The target namespace for queries and actions bound to a namespace. Overrides the NOMAD_NAMESPACE environment variable if set. If set to '*', job and alloc subcommands query all namespaces authorized to user. Defaults to the "default" namespace.

  • -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-server-name=<value>: The server name to use as the SNI host when connecting via TLS. Overrides the NOMAD_TLS_SERVER_NAME 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.

»Status Options

  • -plugin: Display only snapshots managed by a particular CSI plugin. By default the snapshot list command will query all plugins for their snapshots. This flag accepts a plugin ID or prefix. If there is an exact match based on the provided plugin, then that specific plugin will be queried. Otherwise, a list of matching plugins will be displayed.

When ACLs are enabled, this command requires a token with the csi-list-volumes capability for the plugin's namespace.
