git-annex-rekey - change keys used for files
git annex rekey [file key ...]
This plumbing-level command is similar to migrate, but you specify both the file, and the new key to use for it.
Multiple pairs of file and key can be given in a single command line.
Note that, unlike git-annex migrate, this does not copy over metadata, urls, and other such information from the old to the new key
- Allow rekeying of even files whose content is not currently available. Use with caution.
- Enables batch mode, in which lines are read from stdin. Each line should contain the file, and the new key to use for that file, separated by a single space.
- Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines.
- Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
- Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the JSON instead.
- Also the git-annex-common-options(1) can be used.
