Installing the Command Line Interface

Install the PaaS CLI as a Python package.

Use the PIP tool pip3 to install the CLI Python package.
  • On Windows:

    pip3 install -U
  • On Linux:

    sudo —H pip3 install -U


    On Linux, the sudo command is required in order to install a Python package with PIP if you installed PIP as the root user and to the default file system destination.


If your machine requires a proxy server in order to connect to the Internet, set the http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables prior to running PIP.

Windows example:

set http_proxy=
set https_proxy=

Linux example:

export http_proxy=
export https_proxy=
