New features and fixes in version
0.1.5 of the Bluemix CLI Developer Plug-in.
Bluemix Global Support
bx dev create command is updated to to use new URLs to ensure global access.
All container commands of the plugin are enhanced now with a
--trace option. Use of this option returns all of the diagnostic information of the command, as was the default prior to this latest release. Effectively, we’ve dialed down the default tracing so that you have a choice on when you would like to see all of the messages.
Removed Automatic Building from Commands
Each command no longer builds your code before completing its additional steps with this release. To explicitly build your code, you will now use
bx dev build.
Use the Current OS User in the Container
Prior to this release, the user completing all actions in the generated tools container was
root. Now a non-root user may be used. To make use of this feature, there are two small configuration changes needed. First, these additional lines must be added to the tools Dockerfile:
RUN if [ $bx_dev_userid != "root" ]; then useradd -ms /bin/bash $bx_dev_userid; fi
cli-config.yml needs this additional option:
version : 0.0.2
In addition to the features added above, these bug fixes are included as well:
