globus bookmark show - Show bookmark details, or display it in the form of 'ENDPOINT_ID:PATH'


globus bookmark show ['OPTIONS'] 'BOOKMARK_ID_OR_NAME'

globus bookmark show --verbose ['OPTIONS'] 'BOOKMARK_ID_OR_NAME'


The globus bookmark show command takes a single bookmark ID or bookmark name and shows the bookmark details. By default, when the format is TEXT, this will display the endpoint ID and path in 'ENDPOINT_ID:PATH' notation.

If -v, --verbose is given, several fields will be displayed.


--map-http-status 'TEXT'

Map non success HTTP response codes to exit codes other than 1. e.g. "--map-http-satus 403=0,404=0" would exit with 0 even if a 403 or 404 http error code was received. Valid exit codes are 0,1,50-99.

-F, --format '[json|text]'

Set the output format for stdout. Defaults to "text".

--jq, --jmespath 'EXPR'

Supply a JMESPath expression to apply to json output. Takes precedence over any specified '--format' and forces the format to be json processed by this expression.

A full specification of the JMESPath language for querying JSON structures may be found at

-h, --help

Show help text for this command.

-v, --verbose

Control the level of output.

Use -v or --verbose to show warnings and any additional text output.

Use -vv to add informative logging.

Use -vvv to add debug logging and full stack on any errors. (equivalent to -v --debug)


When textual output is requested, the output varies depending on verbosity.

By default, output is simply 'ENDPOINT_ID:PATH'

If -v or --verbose is given, output has the following fields:

  • 'ID'

  • 'Name'

  • 'Endpoint ID'

  • 'Path'


Resolve a bookmark, for use in another command:

$ globus ls "$(globus bookmark show BOOKMARK_NAME)"


0 on success.

1 if a network or server error occurred, unless --map-http-status has been used to change exit behavior on http error codes.

2 if the command was used improperly.
