rclone config update

Update options in an existing remote.


Update an existing remote's options. The options should be passed in in pairs of key value.

For example to update the env_auth field of a remote of name myremote you would do:

rclone config update myremote swift env_auth true

If any of the parameters passed is a password field, then rclone will automatically obscure them if they aren't already obscured before putting them in the config file.

NB If the password parameter is 22 characters or longer and consists only of base64 characters then rclone can get confused about whether the password is already obscured or not and put unobscured passwords into the config file. If you want to be 100% certain that the passwords get obscured then use the "--obscure" flag, or if you are 100% certain you are already passing obscured passwords then use "--no-obscure". You can also set osbscured passwords using the "rclone config password" command.

If the remote uses OAuth the token will be updated, if you don't require this add an extra parameter thus:

rclone config update myremote swift env_auth true config_refresh_token false
rclone config update `name` [`key` `value`]+ [flags]


  -h, --help         help for update
      --no-obscure   Force any passwords not to be obscured.
      --obscure      Force any passwords to be obscured.

See the global flags page for global options not listed here.
