Config load check tool¶
The config load check tool checks that a configuration file in JSON format is written using valid JSON
and conforms to the Envoy JSON schema. This tool leverages the configuration test in
test/config_test/config_test.cc. The test loads the JSON configuration file and runs server configuration
initialization with it.
The tool expects a PATH to the root of a directory that holds JSON Envoy configuration files. The tool will recursively go through the file system tree and run a configuration test for each file found. Keep in mind that the tool will try to load all files found in the path.
The tool will output Envoy logs as it initializes the server configuration with the config it is currently testing. If there are configuration files where the JSON file is malformed or is does not conform to the Envoy JSON schema, the tool will exit with status EXIT_FAILURE. If the tool successfully loads all configuration files found it will exit with status EXIT_SUCCESS.
The tool can be built locally using Bazel.
bazel build //test/tools/config_load_check:config_load_check_tool
The tool takes a path as described above.
