hybris Beans command-line tool + web API


This tool is a part of my hybris Runtime Developer tools package. It allows showing one-page all-in-one information about hybris beans using the command line interface.


  • REST API and console tool with the common configuration,
  • Shows the information about the specific bean,
  • Changing bean values (!) on the fly.


Command-line interface

The command-line app is a console wrapper for API. See API for the details.


Change the value property of bean to value

./hybrisBeans.sh -b bean -n property -v value

Show all hybris beans:



parameter  Description Example
? help, available options. Only for the console version.
bean (-b) Shows/update the bean information bean=myProductRaoPopulator
propertyname (-n) name of the bean to change propertyname=categoryService
propertyvalue (-v) new value of the bean propertyvalue=<defaultCategoryService>


Changing any property of any bean:

#bash hybrisBeans.sh -b myProductRaoPopulator -n categoryService -v "<defaultCategoryService>"

You can see the list of bean methods here:

#bash hybrisBeans.sh -b indexerService

curl "https://electronics.local:9002/tools/beans/bean/myProductRaoPopulator?propertyName=categoryConverter&propertyValue=<defaultCategoryRaoConverter>" -k 2>/dev/null



  • You can change the value of the bean property only if the bean has a setter for this property. For example, bean “multipartResolver” (org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartResolver) has a roperty named maxUploadSize that cannot be changed using my utility because the class from Spring doesn’t have a setter.
  • The current implementation supports properties of two types: Strings and References. Properties of List or Map types are not supported yet.
  • Sometimes bean classes use parameters only at the first load. You will be able to change the values of the parameters but the initial value will be used anyway.
