Command line interface

You can perform several operations from the command line using Django commands, Fleio commands and BASH scripts.

For Django and Fleio commands you need to activate the Python virtual environment first.

Activate the virtual environment

Connect via SSH to the machine where Fleio is installed and run:

# following line is only needed on CentOS 7 to activate Python 3 (as Python 2 is default on CentOS)
if [ -e /opt/rh/rh-python35/enable ] ; then . /opt/rh/rh-python35/enable; fi
# activate the Python virtual environment
. /var/webapps/fleio/env/bin/activate
# go to the Fleio backend Django project directory
cd /var/webapps/fleio/project/

Now you have access to the Django standard commands as well as the Django commands added by Fleio.

List the Django and Fleio commands

To see a list of available commands just run django help. Note that django is a shortcut for python manage.py. So you get the same effect if you run python manage.py help.

Here’s the django help output:

$ django help

Type 'manage.py help <subcommand>' for help on a specific subcommand.

Available subcommands:

[auth]
    changepassword
    createsuperuser

Reset admin password

You can change any Fleio user password from the command line, including the admin/staff user password.

Connect via SSH to the machine where Fleio is installed and activate the virtual environment.

Then run:

django changepassword <<USER NAME>>

If you can’t remember the username either, you can run a query on the Fleio database and see the list of users:

mysql fleio

MariaDB [fleio]> SELECT username FROM core_appuser;
+--------------+
| username     |
+--------------+
| demoadmin    |
| joen@doe.com |
+--------------+
