I recently discovered an interesting feature of the IBM Cloud CLI: plugins. These plugins, which are usually linked to specific IBM Cloud services, add new commands and functions to the IBM Cloud CLI.
The IBM Cloud CLI provides a simple interface to install, uninstall, update and search for plugins via the
ibmcloud plugin command.
- To use a plugin, you must first install it with the
ibmcloud plugin installcommand. Here’s an example:
ibmcloud plugin install cloud-object-storage
- You can uninstall a plugin at any time with the
ibmcloud plugin uninstallcommand. Here’s an example:
ibmcloud plugin uninstall cloud-object-storage
- A number of plugins are available. You can see a complete list with the following command:
ibmcloud plugin repo-plugins
