The documentation only mentions one use of
circleci-agent step halt .
Because this call is made of 2 params “step” and “halt”, I was wondering if any other values for those parameters were allowed.
Without any trace of documentation in the official website and this forum, I also inspected the Dockerfile but found not trace of it. I tried running a container from the images supposedly including it, but there are no functions nor binaries with this name.
My current guess is that it is injected as a docker volume by the CircleCI engine, so my only option is to run a job in ssh in order to debug it.
Being a very cumbersome operation, we should include somewhere a reference to this utility.
