Release: EB CLI 3.14.4 on August 16, 2018

The AWS Elastic Beanstalk Command Line Interface (EB CLI) has a new version, which improves "eb platform" help text.

Release date: August 16, 2018


You can use the eb platform set of EB CLI commands in two contexts. You can use some of its commands in a custom platform workspace, and others in an application workspace. Previously, when you ran eb platform --help or eb platform subcommand --help, the help message that the command displayed depended on the workspace in which you ran it. This meant that you didn't get the full explanation about what the command can do.

With this release, these help messages are identical no matter where you run the command. Each help message covers the full range of options that the command provides, organized by the context in which you run it. For example:

$ eb platform –-help usage: eb platform <command> [options...] Commands for managing platforms. For more information on a specific command, enter "eb platform {cmd} --help". To get started, enter "eb platform init". Then enter "eb platform create". application workspace commands: show Shows information about current platform. select Selects a default platform. platform workspace commands: init Initializes your directory with the EB CLI to create and manage platforms. status Displays metadata about your current custom platform version. use Selects the active custom platform version to use for this workspace. create Creates a new custom platform version. delete Deletes a custom platform version. events Displays events for the custom platform associated with this workspace. logs Retrieves logs for your custom platform build event. common commands: list In a platform workspace, lists versions of the custom platform associated with this workspace. Elsewhere, lists available platforms. optional arguments: -h, --help Show this help message and exit. --debug Toggle debug output. --quiet Suppress all output. -v, --verbose Toggle verbose output. --profile PROFILE Use a specific profile from your credentials file. -r REGION, --region REGION Use a specific region. --no-verify-ssl Don’t verify AWS SSL certificates.
