Common CLI Options

Update operation allows an already submitted/scheduled entity to be updated and put it into the archive.Archive path is defined in startup.properties in variable "config.store.uri". Datasource updates are currently not allowed.

Usage: $FALCON_HOME/bin/falcon entity -type [cluster|feed|process] -name <<name>> -update -file <<path_to_file>>

Optional Arg : -skipDryRun. When this argument is specified, Falcon skips oozie dryrun.

Example: $FALCON_HOME/bin/falcon entity -type process -name hourly-reports-generator -update -file /process/definition.xml

Note: When a cluster entity is updated, the dependent feed and process bundle+coordinators are updated in the workflow engine. Hence, only a falcon superuser who has ability to impersonate other users can update a cluster entity.
