lacework query validate

Validate a query


Use this command to validate a single LQL query before creating it.

There are multiple ways you can validate a query:

  • Typing the query into your default editor (via $EDITOR)
  • From a local file on disk using the flag '--file'
  • From a URL using the flag '--url'

There are also multiple formats you can use to define a query:

  • Javascript Object Notation (JSON)
  • YAML Ain't Markup Language (YAML)

To launch your default editor and validate a query.
