Known issues


The CLI caches details of your projects and their environments, and some other information. These caches could become out-of-date. You can clear caches with the command platform clear-cache (or platform cc for short).


You can configure the CLI via these environment variables:

  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_TOKEN: an API token to use for non-interactive login (not yet available)
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_COPY_ON_WINDOWS: set to 1 to avoid some Windows symlink issues
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_DEBUG: set to 1 to enable cURL debugging
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_DISABLE_CACHE: set to 1 to disable caching
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_DRUSH: configure the Drush executable to use (default 'drush')
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_SESSION_ID: change user session (default 'default')
  • http_proxy or https_proxy: specify a proxy for connecting to
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_API_TOKEN: a 'personal access token' to authenticate all requests (deprecated)
