      Description

      The Jenkins CLI is missing support for retrieving the configuration of a job. The http://jenkins/job/name/config.xml URL only works when no authentication/authorization is required to access the file. The new command for the Jenkins CLI would complement the already existing create-job command.

          I am also interested in this. In addition to getting the job config via CLI, we also need capability to set the job config via CLI. This is a legit use case for several of my customers and a CLI capability which other CI toolkits include.

          Parameters to the edit-job would be the job name and/or updated xml file on the filesystem. Seems easy to implement.

          Hm, curl -u USERNAME http://jenkins/job/name/config.xml works for me. curl wants me to enter the password then or I could provide it via -uUSERNAME:PASSWORD.

          Additionally, if you want to use wget, you can use

          wget --user=username --password=password http://jenkins/job/name/config.xml.

          This also works for the node toggleOffline command.
