Config file format

is there a way to set config file format to hcl or json. other than the file extension ?

Hi @lounanealerts,

You can use the -config-format string to do this. Here’s a description of the parameter from the output of consul agent -help.

$ consul agent -help
     Config files are in this format irrespective of their extension.
     Must be 'hcl' or 'json'

Here’s an example of how you can use this command.

$ consul agent -config-file=config.txt -config-format=hcl
