What’s included in IBM Cloud Developer Tools CLI version 2.0.1?

The IBM Cloud app services that the CLI interfaces with to provide IBM Cloud content have undergone a transformation to support IBM Cloud resourcesAs a result, CLI versions prior to 2.0.1 will no longer be able to communicate with IBM Cloud. With this change, we are also bringing some exciting new features to the CLI as described below.

Manage your application’s services

In CLI version 2.0.1, we are introducing the edit command.  This command gives you the capability to manage the services of an app after it has been created with create or cloud-enabled with enable. The command is accessed by invoking ibmcloud dev edit in your app folder. You can create and connect new services, connect existing services on your account to the app, disconnect services from the app, and delete services from your IBM Cloud account entirely, all through this one command.

Choose an IBM Cloud region for a service

IBM Cloud now supports hosting your apps and services in different regions. If you are connecting a resource controller based service, the CLI will now ask you to select the region where the service should be hosted.

Automatically provision required services

Some Starter Kits require certain services for the Starter Kit to function properly. These services will now be automatically provisioned when the Starter Kit is selected for an app and visually communicated back to you.

Diagnostic command

New with this release is the diag command. Executing  ibmcloud dev diag reports the versions of the CLI, plugins used by the developer tools, and the installed prerequisite software. You will also see the output of this command anytime you run a command with the --trace flag.

List command performance

The list command is simplified in this release, improving the response time of this query to IBM Cloud for the apps you’ve created.
