Sets the permissions required to allow the Synchronizer to download environment data from the control plane. You must call this API to enable proper functioning of hybrid. Pass the ETag when calling setSyncAuthorization to ensure that you are updating the correct version. To get an ETag, call getSyncAuthorization. If you don't pass the ETag in the call to setSyncAuthorization, then the existing authorization is overwritten indiscriminately. For more information, see Configure the Synchronizer. Note: Available to Apigee hybrid only.


You will need authorization for the scope to make a valid call.

If unset, the scope for this method defaults to You can set the scope for this method like this: apigee1 --scope <scope> organizations set-sync-authorization ...

Required Scalar Argument

  • <name> (string)
    • Required. Name of the Apigee organization. Use the following structure in your request: organizations/{org}

Required Request Value

The request value is a data-structure with various fields. Each field may be a simple scalar or another data-structure. In the latter case it is advised to set the field-cursor to the data-structure's field to specify values more concisely.

For example, a structure like this:

  etag: string
  identities: [string]

can be set completely with the following arguments which are assumed to be executed in the given order. Note how the cursor position is adjusted to the respective structures, allowing simple field names to be used most of the time.

  • -r . etag=consetetur
    • Entity tag (ETag) used for optimistic concurrency control as a way to help prevent simultaneous updates from overwriting each other. For example, when you call getSyncAuthorization an ETag is returned in the response. Pass that ETag when calling the setSyncAuthorization to ensure that you are updating the correct version. If you don't pass the ETag in the call to setSyncAuthorization, then the existing authorization is overwritten indiscriminately. Note: We strongly recommend that you use the ETag in the read-modify-write cycle to avoid race conditions.
  • identities=amet
    • Required. Array of service accounts to grant access to control plane resources, each specified using the following format: serviceAccount: service-account-name. The service-account-name is formatted like an email address. For example: You might specify multiple service accounts, for example, if you have multiple environments and wish to assign a unique service account to each one. The service accounts must have Apigee Synchronizer Manager role. See also Create service accounts.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.

About Cursors

The cursor position is key to comfortably set complex nested structures. The following rules apply:

  • The cursor position is always set relative to the current one, unless the field name starts with the . character. Fields can be nested such as in -r f.s.o .
  • The cursor position is set relative to the top-level structure if it starts with ., e.g. -r .s.s
  • You can also set nested fields without setting the cursor explicitly. For example, to set a value relative to the current cursor position, you would specify -r struct.sub_struct=bar.
  • You can move the cursor one level up by using ... Each additional . moves it up one additional level. E.g. ... would go three levels up.

Optional Output Flags

The method's return value a JSON encoded structure, which will be written to standard output by default.

  • -o out
    • out specifies the destination to which to write the server's result to. It will be a JSON-encoded structure. The destination may be - to indicate standard output, or a filepath that is to contain the received bytes. If unset, it defaults to standard output.

Optional General Properties

The following properties can configure any call, and are not specific to this method.

  • -p $-xgafv=string

    • V1 error format.
  • -p access-token=string

    • OAuth access token.
  • -p alt=string

    • Data format for response.
  • -p callback=string

    • JSONP
  • -p fields=string

    • Selector specifying which fields to include in a partial response.
  • -p key=string

    • API key. Your API key identifies your project and provides you with API access, quota, and reports. Required unless you provide an OAuth 2.0 token.
  • -p oauth-token=string

    • OAuth 2.0 token for the current user.
  • -p pretty-print=boolean

    • Returns response with indentations and line breaks.
  • -p quota-user=string

    • Available to use for quota purposes for server-side applications. Can be any arbitrary string assigned to a user, but should not exceed 40 characters.
  • -p upload-type=string

    • Legacy upload protocol for media (e.g. "media", "multipart").
  • -p upload-protocol=string

    • Upload protocol for media (e.g. "raw", "multipart").
