datalad update [-h] [-s SIBLING] [--merge] [-d DATASET] [-r] [-R LEVELS] [--fetch-all] [--reobtain-data] [PATH [PATH ...]]
Update a dataset from a sibling.
Update from a particular sibling:
% datalad update -s <siblingname>
Update from a particular sibling and merge the obtained changes:
% datalad update --merge -s <siblingname>
constrain to-be-updated subdatasets to the given path for recursive operation. Constraints: value must be a string
-h, --help, --help-np¶
show this help message. –help-np forcefully disables the use of a pager for displaying the help message
-s SIBLING, --sibling SIBLING¶
name of the sibling to update from. If no sibling is given, updates from all siblings are obtained. Constraints: value must be a string
merge obtained changes from the given or the default sibling.
-d DATASET, --dataset DATASET¶
specify the dataset to update. If no dataset is given, an attempt is made to identify the dataset based on the current working directory. Constraints: Value must be a Dataset or a valid identifier of a Dataset (e.g. a path)
if set, recurse into potential subdataset.
-R LEVELS, --recursion-limit LEVELS¶
limit recursion into subdataset to the given number of levels. Constraints: value must be convertible to type ‘int’
this option has no effect and will be removed in a future version. When no siblings are given, an all-sibling update will be performed.
if enabled, file content that was present before an update will be re-obtained in case a file was changed by the update.
