Uploading environments


#1

When reading the docs on how to upload environments, I am seeing two ways.

  1. knife upload environments
  2. knife environment from file environments/*.json

Is there a reason to use one way over the other?


#2

Historically, ‘knife environment from file’ was the only option.
Knife-essentials[1] introduced shortcuts for treating your Chef server like
a filesystem. It’s knife-essentials that introduced ‘knife upload
’. As of Chef11, knife-essentials was merged into core Chef.
