About DCLI

DCLI allows you to work with a simplified command-line interface that you can use to run common system administration commands against VMware Cloud on AWS, NSX-T, and vCenter Server systems.

Note: DCLI supports running NSX-T commands only against NSX-T in VMware Cloud on AWS environments.

What's New

DCLI 2.10.2 introduces the following changes and improvements.

  • Multi-server support - you can now connect to VMware Cloud on AWS, NSX-T, and vCenter Server endpoints at the same time.
    Note: You can connect to only one instance of each connection type.
  • You can now filter DCLI command output by using JMESPath expressions with the new +filter option.
  • There is now a --version option which retrieves the same information as the dcli env about get internal command.
  • There is now a +verbose option which returns verbose output and works like the +loglevel debug option.
  • DCLI options now support scopes. You can provide a + option value when entering interactive mode and use that value for all commands that you run during the interactive session.

Resolved Issues

  • The +password option does not accept explicit passwords

    If you use the +password option to provide your password explicitly, the value is not saved and you need to provide the password again to the DCLI password prompt.

  • The +more option works only with a table formatter

    If you try to use the +more option with any formatter different from table, the option does not work.

Known Issues

  • Interactive mode autocompletion does not work with multiple spaces

    If you type more than one space between words in interactive mode, DCLI stops providing suggestions.
