Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

#10770 closed defect (duplicate)

Rackspace protocol CLI help has too many slashes

Reported by: softgrow Owned by: jmalek
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.1
Component: cli Version: 6.9.4
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Architecture:


The CLI help lists the Rackspace Cloud files protocol as

$ duck --help Usage:duck [options...] ... Default protocols ...

Rackspace Cloud Files (US) rackspace://<container>/<key>


However the documentation at lists the protocol as rackspace:/<container>/<key> (absolute) rackspace:<container>/<key> (relative)

It appears that some time in the last few months prior to 6.9.4, rackspace:// was treated the same as rackspace:/ but this is no longer the case the the URI cannot be specified with two slashes. If it is the <container> item is treated as server address which is non-sensical for the rackspace protocol.

To resolve this bug the help should have the extra slash removed to become:

$ duck --help Usage:duck [options...] ... Default protocols ...

Rackspace Cloud Files (US) rackspace:/<container>/<key>


I have examined the source and each protocol is enumerated from lines 59-71 of

There is still a conflict between the help and the documentation.

What version of Cyberduck CLI are you running?

Ok, looks to be a duplicate of another bug. I saw it on 6.9.4 but is fixed in 7.0.2 (OSX via
