ory patch identity-config

ory patch identity-config

Patch the Ory Identities configuration of the defined Ory Network project.


Patch the Ory Identities configuration of the defined Ory Network project. Only values specified in the patch will be overwritten. To replace the config use the update command instead.

Compared to the patch project command, this command updates only the Ory Identities configuration and returns the configuration as a result. This command is useful when you want to import configuration from self-hosted Ory Kratos to Ory Network. Using this command allows for shorter paths when specifying the flags:

ory patch identity-config ecaaa3cb-0730-4ee8-a6df-9553cdfeef89 \
--replace '/selfservice/methods/password/enabled=false'

when compared to the patch project command:

ory patch project ecaaa3cb-0730-4ee8-a6df-9553cdfeef89 \
--replace '/services/identity/config/selfservice/methods/password/enabled=false'

The format of the patch is a JSON-Patch document. For more details please check:
