upgrade-format — Upgrade System Description


machinery upgrade-format --all

machinery upgrade-format NAME

machinery help upgrade-format


The upgrade-format command upgrades a system description to the latest format version.

The format in this context is the structure of the internal system description data. If the format version of a system description does not match the current machinery format version, machinery is no longer able to work with the data until it is upgraded. The current format version can be retrieved using machinery --version. The format version of a system description can be found in the meta section of the according manifest.json file.

If the --all switch is given all local descriptions will be upgraded.
