With the Application Services command-line interface options, you can deploy an application, update a deployed application, or tear down an application from the cloud.

After you log in to the CLI program, in the roo shell prompt, press the Tab key to display the list of available command options. Your access to the command options depends on your assigned user role. For information about user roles and their allowed functions, see Setting Up Users and Groups.

If you use multiple words with spaces between the words, enclose the words in quotation marks. Often after you enter a command, the system displays many details, in addition to indicating whether the command was successful.


Do not use command options that are not available in CLI.
