NAME

zone2json - convert BIND zones to JSON

SYNOPSIS

zone2json {--named-conf=PATH,--zone-file=PATH [--zone-name=NAME]} [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

zone2json parses Bind named.conf files and zonefiles and outputs JSON on standard out, which can then be fed to the PowerDNS API.

zone2json understands the Bind master file extension $GENERATE and will also honour $ORIGIN and $TTL.

OPTIONS

INPUT OPTIONS

--named-conf=PATH : Read PATH to get the bind configuration

--zone=PATH : Parse only the zone file at PATH Conflicts with --named-conf parameter.

--zone-name=NAME : When parsing a single zone without $ORIGIN statement, set ZONE as the zone name.

OTHER OPTIONS

--help : List all options

--on-error-resume-next : Ignore missing zone files during parsing. Dangerous.

--verbose : Be verbose during conversion.
