Using P2 Provisioning Commands

The P2 Provisioning Commands are console commands enabled by the presence of P2 that allow you to do common provisioning operations, such as managing the repository and profiles, installing and removing components, etc.


Prerequisties

To have the Eclipse console available, you have to add -console as a program argument either in the Eclipse.ini file of your default Eclipse installation, or, in the Argument tab in your Eclipse IDE.

To run with the provisioning console enabled, make sure that the P2 console bundle is available and started in the process to which you want to connect the console:

1. Start the console.

2. Find the ID of the P2 console bundle by using the command:

>ss p2.console
<bundle ID> RESOLVED org.eclipse.equinox.p2.console_1.0.202

3. Start the bundle:

> start <bundle ID>

4. To list all the commands, type man in the console line. The P2 Provisioning Commands all start with "prov".

P2 Provisioning Commands

Repository Commands

provaddrepo <repository URI> - Adds both a metadata and artifact repository at URI provdelrepo <repository URI> - Deletes a metadata and artifact repository at URI provaddmetadatarepo <repository URI> - Adds a metadata repository at URI provdelmetadatarepo <repository URI> - Deletes a metadata repository at URI provaddartifactrepo <repository URI> - Adds an artifact repository at URI provdelartifactrepo <repository URI> - Deletes an artifact repository URI provlg [<repository URI> <iu id | *> <version range | *>] - Lists all IUs with group capabilities in the given repository or in all repositories if URI is omitted provlr [<repository URI> <iu id | *> <version range | *>] - Lists all metadata repositories, or the contents of a given metadata repository provlar [<repository URI>] - Lists all artifact repositories, or the contents of a given artifact repository provliu [<repository URI | *> <iu id | *> <version range | *>] - Lists the IUs that match the pattern in the given repo. * matches all provlquery <repository URI | *> <expression> [ true | false ] - Lists the IUs that match the query expression in the given repo. * matches all. The expression is expected to be a boolean match expression unless the third argument is true, in which case the expression is a full query.


Profile Registry Commands

provaddprofile <profileid> <location> <flavor> - Adds a profile with the given profileid, location and flavor provdelprofile <profileid> - Deletes a profile with the given profileid provlp [<profileid | *>] - Lists all profiles, or the contents of the profile at the given profile provlgp [<profileid>] - Lists all IUs with group capabilities in the given profile, or current profile if profileid is omitted provlpts [<profileid>] - Lists timestamps for given profile, or if no profileid given then the default profile timestamps are reported provlpquery <profileid | this> <expression> [ true | false ] - Lists the IUs that match the query expression in the given profile. The expression is expected to be a boolean match expression unless the third argument is true, in which case the expression is a full query


Install Commands

provinstall <InstallableUnit> <version> <profileid> - installs an IU to the profileid. If no profileid is given, installs into the default profile. provremove <InstallableUnit> <version> <profileid> - Removes an IU from the profileid. If no profileid is given, installs into the default profile. provrevert <profileTimestamp> <profileid>] - Reverts to a given profile time stamp for an optional profileId To see the applied configuration changes at runtime, you have to use command "confapply"

Note that the install commands use only the previously added repositories. If your IU is part of a new custom repository, you have to add the repository manually using the provaddrepo command.
