`juju` environment variables

See also:

This document lists the environment variables that are available on the Juju client in order to change its default behaviour.

Contents:

GOCOOKIES

The default location of the Go cookies file is ~/.go-cookies. This variable can change that.

Example:

GOCOOKIES=/var/lib/landscape/juju-homes/1/.go-cookies

JUJU_CONTROLLER

Used to specify the current Juju controller to use. This is overridden if the controller is specified on the command line using -c CONTROLLER.

JUJU_DATA

This sets the path where Juju will look for its configuration files. You do not need to set this - by default Juju follows XDG guidelines and on Linux systems it will use the path:

~/.local/share/juju

JUJU_HOME (deprecated)

For versions of Juju prior to 2.0, this variable indicated the ‘home’ directory where Juju kept configuration and other data.

JUJU_HOME=~/.juju

JUJU_REPOSITORY (deprecated)

For versions prior to 2.0, this variable set a local charms directory that Juju would search when deploying an application. The equivalent --repository=/path/to/charms switch (with juju deploy) was also available.

Both the environment variable and the switch are no longer functional in 2.x versions.

JUJU_LOGGING_CONFIG

This setting takes effect on an environment only at bootstrap time. In stable Juju releases, agents are started with logging set to WARNING, and units are set to INFO. Development releases are set to DEBUG globally. Post bootstrap, on a running environment you can change the logging options to be more or less verbose. For example:

juju model-config logging-config="juju=DEBUG; unit=WARNING"

JUJU_MODEL

Used to specify the current Juju model to use. This is overridden if the model is specified on the command line using -m MODEL.

JUJU_DEV_FEATURE_FLAGS

This setting takes effect on an environment only at bootstrap time. Unstable or pre-release features are enabled only when the feature flag is enabled prior to bootstrapping the environment.

JUJU_DEV_FEATURE_FLAGS=<flag1,flag2> juju bootstrap

Unforeseen and detrimental results can occur by enabling developmental features. Do not do so on production systems.

JUJU_STARTUP_LOGGING_CONFIG

This setting takes effect on an environment only at bootstrap time, and is used to set the verbosity of the bootstrap process. For example, to troubleshoot a failure bootstrapping during provider development, you can set the log level to TRACE.

JUJU_STARTUP_LOGGING_CONFIG=TRACE juju bootstrap

JUJU_CLI_VERSION

This allows you to change the behaviour of the command line interface (CLI) between major Juju releases and exists as a compatibility flag for those users wishing to enable the newer behaviour of the Juju CLI. As the CLI output and behaviour is stable between minor releases of Juju, setting JUJU_CLI_VERSION will enable developers and users to preview the newer behaviour of the CLI.

export JUJU_CLI_VERSION=2
juju status

Internal Use only

These exist for developmental purposes only.

JUJU_DUMMY_DELAY
