operator command provides cluster-level tools for Consul operators, such
as interacting with the Raft subsystem. This was added in Consul 0.7.
Use this command with extreme caution, as improper use could lead to a Consul outage and even loss of data.
If ACLs are enabled then a token with operator privileges may be required in order to use this command. Requests are forwarded internally to the leader if required, so this can be run from any Consul node in a cluster. See the ACL Guide for more information.
See the Disaster recovery for Consul clusters guide for some examples of how this command is used. For an API to perform these operations programmatically, please see the documentation for the Operator endpoint.
