Consul acl bootstrap file-path


I’ve basically come across the command above by mistake. Having written another argument after consul acl bootstrap, it errored out saying that the file didn’t exist. So what I did was create a file with the a bootstrap token and it worked and this is how I was able to set the bootstrap token to an existing one.

I just wonder, is this part of the command documented anywhere?

I see that you can bootstrap the ACLs with the initial_management directive in the consul config Agents - Configuration File Reference | Consul | HashiCorp Developer.

Commands: ACL Bootstrap | Consul | HashiCorp Developer ?
