New pipeline describe command

· One min read

With Meroxa CLI version v1.5.0, we're introducing a new command pipeline describe to inspect more information about your pipeline.

For example, for a pipeline named my-meroxa-pipeline you would run:

$ meroxa pipelines describe my-meroxa-pipeline
UUID: 58776dd1-76e4-48aa-a2cc-4978b1ba486f
ID: 1915
Name: my-meroxa-pipeline
State: Healthy

Over time, we'll include new details to this command that will let you gather more information of your pipeline.

As an example of how a describe command could be useful, in v1.4.0, we included the ability to see a connector trace for those failed connectors via connectors describe:

$ meroxa connectors describe my-connector
ID: 2470
Name: my-connector
Type: cosmosdb-source
Streams: (output) resource-2957-203946-demo
State: failed
Pipeline: my-pipeline
Trace: java.lang.RuntimeException: Client initialization failed. Check if the endpoint is reachable and if your auth token is valid
