If you want to show complete Bareos console session, then it needs to be put in a code block.

   :caption: Example: adding a client and a job resource during runtime

    *<input>configure add client name=client2-fd address=192.168.0.2 password=secret</input>
    Created resource config file "/etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/client/client2-fd.conf":
    Client {
      Name = client2-fd
      Address = 192.168.0.2
      Password = <strong>secret</strong>
    }
    *<input>configure add job name=client2-job client=client2-fd jobdefs=DefaultJob</input>
    Created resource config file "/etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/job/client2-job.conf":
    Job {
      Name = client2-job
      Client = client2-fd
      JobDefs = DefaultJob
    }

The output will look like this:

Example: adding a client and a job resource during runtime
 *configure add client name=client2-fd address=192.168.0.2 password=secret
 Created resource config file "/etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/client/client2-fd.conf":
 Client {
   Name = client2-fd
   Address = 192.168.0.2
   Password = secret
 }
 *configure add job name=client2-job client=client2-fd jobdefs=DefaultJob
 Created resource config file "/etc/bareos/bareos-dir.d/job/client2-job.conf":
 Job {
   Name = client2-job
   Client = client2-fd
   JobDefs = DefaultJob
 }

A prompt is indicated by ‘’*’‘.

To indicate user input, use the <input> decoration:

<input>some user input here</input>

It will be highlighted in the output.

It is only possible, to use the <strong> decoration, to highlight something, that is not a user input. In our example, the password is highlighted.
