The command-line and the frontend which simplify common tasks, are helping with migrations, and ensure that Home Assistant runs properly. Please do not confuse those with with Home Assistant’s script feature.
Test any changes to your
configuration.yaml file before launching Home Assistant. This script allows you to test changes without the need to restart Home Assistant.
$ hass --script check_config
This script checks if the
configuration.yaml file exists. If the file is not available, one is created.
$ hass --script ensure_config
There is a method to store secrets outside of your
configuration.yaml file. For further details, please refer to the Storing Secrets documentation.
$ hass --script keyring
Usally those scripts were only use when a massive update happend and was announced in the release notes.
