Plugin management commands


The Fuel command-line interface has been updated. Although old fuel commands are still available, we recommend that you use the new fuel2 commands instead. See the Fuel CLI commands comparison matrix.

The following table describes the plugin management commands available in the Fuel CLI.


To view the list of all available options, use the fuel plugins --help command.
