The CLI is the official command-line interface for Use this tool to interact with your projects, and to build them locally for development purposes.

Build Status


  • Operating system: Linux, OS X, Windows Vista, Windows 7 (any), or Windows 8 Pro (Win8 Standard does not work due to an issue with symlink permissions)
  • PHP 5.4.0 or higher, with cURL support
  • Composer
  • Drush (only needed for Drupal projects)


  • Install Composer globally.

  • Install the latest stable version of the CLI:

    composer global require platformsh/cli:@stable
  • Make sure Composer's vendor/bin directory is in your system's PATH.

    In Linux or OS X, add this line to your shell configuration file:

      export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"

    In Windows, you can use this command from a Command Prompt (cmd.exe):

      setx PATH "%PATH%;%APPDATA%\Composer\vendor\bin"

    Start a new shell before continuing.

  • Enable auto-completion and shell aliases (optional, but recommended).

    In Linux or OS X, add this line to your shell configuration file:

      . "$HOME/.composer/vendor/platformsh/cli/platform.rc" 2>/dev/null

    In Windows, it would be:

      . "$APPDATA/Composer/vendor/platformsh/cli/platform.rc" 2> nul
Shell configuration file

Your 'shell configuration file' might be in any of the following locations:

  • ~/.bashrc (common in Linux)
  • ~/.bash_profile (common in OS X)
  • ~/.zshrc (if using ZSH)

Start a new shell or type source <filename> to load the new configuration.


New releases of the CLI are made regularly. Update with this command:

composer global update


You can run the CLI in your shell by typing platform.


Use the 'list' command to get a list of available options and commands:

    platform list


The current output of platform list is as follows: CLI

Global options:
  --help           -h Display this help message

Known issues


The CLI caches details of your projects and their environments. These caches could become out-of-date. You can get a fresh list of projects or environments with the platform projects and platform environments commands.


You can configure the CLI via these environment variables:

  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_API_TOKEN: an API token to use for all requests
  • 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_ENVIRONMENTS_TTL: the cache TTL for environments, in seconds (default 600)
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_PROJECTS_TTL: the cache TTL for projects, in seconds (default 3600)
  • PLATFORMSH_CLI_SESSION_ID: change user (default 'default')
  • http_proxy or https_proxy: specify a proxy for connecting to
