globus-connect-server collection list - List collections on an endpoint


globus-connect-server collection list [OPTIONS]…​


The globus-connect-server collection list command displays a summary of the collections that exist on an endpoint.

By default, this command displays a table of data that includes the collection id, name, owner, type (mapped or guest), and storage gateway id. Alternatively, it can display a JSON document containing the list results. Use the -F json command-line option to enable this output format.

The default output only includes the public configuration data for the collections. To request the private configuration data as well, you must have an administrator role on the collection assigned to one of your identities and use the --include-private-policies flag. For high-assurance endpoints this data is only visible if the request is done with an administrator id that is valid in the session and meets the authentication requirements of the storage gateway that the collection is providing access to.

You can filter the list of collections that are queried and displayed in two different ways. You can filter Guest collections by the ID of the mapped collection that they are sharing data from by using the --mapped-collection-id COLLECTION_ID parameter. You can also use the --filter FILTER_LIST parameter to apply one or more of the following filters to the results:


Filter out collections which do not have the collection_type property set to "mapped".


Filter out collections which do not have the collection_type property set to "guest".


Filter out collections where none of the caller’s identities have a role association for the collection.


Filter out collections where none of the callers identities match the identity_id property of the collection.


Multiple filters may be specified on the command-line, but certain combinations (such as filtering only mapped collections and only guest collections) will always yield an empty result.


-h, --help

Show help message and exit.


Show the version and exit.


Flag to include the private policies. See above for information about requirements to view private policies.

-F, --format "text"|"json"

Output format for this command. If the format is json, then the collection document is displayed.

--filter "mapped-collections"|"guest_collections"|"managed-by-me"|"created-by-me"

Filter output as described above. This may be passed multiple times to apply several filters to the results.


This example lists the collections on an endpoint with a single collection:
