The complete command is inherited from the python-cliff library, it can be used to generate a bash-completion script. Currently, the command will generate a script for bash versions 3 or 4. The bash-completion script is printed directly to standard out.

Typical usage for this command is:

openstack complete | sudo tee /etc/bash_completion.d/osc.bash_completion > /dev/null

It is highly recommended to install python-openstackclient from a package (apt-get or yum). In some distributions the package bash-completion is shipped as dependency, and the openstack complete command will be run as a post-install action, however not every distribution include this dependency and you might need to install bash-completion package to enable autocomplete feature.
