Using WildFly CLI to read the configuration file

If you want to read the application server configuration file (e.g. standalone.xml or domain.xml) directly from the CLI all you need to do is executing the command :read-config-as-xml. This can be useful to be executed as part of a script, so that you can redirect the standard output to a file, like in the following example:

./ -c --controller=localhost:9990 --user=admin --password=Password1! --command=":read-config-as-xml()" > myconfig.xml

On the other hand, if you want to reverse engineer the application server’s configuration, then we recommend using the Profile cloner tool, which is discussed in this tutorial: Reverse engineer your JBoss AS-WildFly configuration to CLI
