Acquia Content Hub Console

Acquia Cloud Content Hub Console provides a command line tool to execute Acquia Content Hub related commands on all sites that belong to a particular platform, like

  • Acquia Cloud
  • Acquia Cloud - Multisite
  • Acquia Site Factory

One of the most important commands that is provided by this tool is the one that allows you to upgrade your sites from Content Hub 1.x to 2.x by executing a single command and performing all the operations that are required by the upgrade.


Install the package with the latest version of composer:

$composer require acquia/contenthub-console
$composer install

Note that this package must be installed locally and in the codebase on your remote platform (Acquia Cloud or Acquia Site Factory) in order for commands to work.

Create a Platform

In order for this tool to execute commands remotely on your Acquia Cloud Platform, first create a platform with the following command:

$./vendor/bin/commoncli pc

This command will guide you through the platform creation. Notice that the alias given to this platform will be what you will use later when executing commands remotely.


The following are some of the commands that are available to you:
