The dsbackup global help shows the connection and task-related arguments, this is not ideal for two reasons:
- It clutters the global help with too many details, the goal of the global help is to give an overview of the tool capabilities
- It says that the "online" mode is supported for every sub-commands whereas the list sub-command does not support it.
Now that Jean-Noël Rouvignac has made it possible to group arguments by category in a sub-command help (
OPENDJ-7249), it should be fairly easy to move these argument descriptions to the sub-commands help.
This issue can be closed once:
- dsbackup --help does not show any of the connection and task arguments.
- dsbackup create --help, dsbackup restore --help and dsbackup purge --help show the connection and task arguments.
