Generally Available Release — This is the GA release of the new VMware Cloud Services CLI, a companion to VMware vRealize Automation Cloud.

This release adds GDPR compliance for VMware vRealize Automation Cloud instances running in non-US regions.
The VMware Cloud Services CLI is a command-line utility that provides verb-based access with a unified interface
- Create and Manage Cloud Assembly discovered and created objects such as network devices, storage devices, compute instances and more.

To run the VMware Cloud Services CLI, download the ZIP file and extract the vcs binary appropriate for your operating system
- To use Darwin/Linux binaries with auto completion feature, please make sure to have bash completion installed on your system.
- Windows completion:
- When exiting the shell, Ctrl-D is the only way to exit the auto completion prompt in Windows. Use these keys to exit as needed.
- For an optimal user experience, use PowerShell. If using any other terminal, change the background to a color such as Dark Blue, Gray, or Black, to make it more compatible with the auto-completion color.
- CLI does not accept spaces in string values
When you are using the CLI in interactive mode on Windows, string flag values with spaces are not accepted.
Workaround: In place of spaces, use a double-underscore notation.. For example, to describe a blueprint with name
Single Machine use the following command with flag values as shown:
vcs cloud-assembly blueprint describe --blueprint "Single__Machine" OR
vcs cloud-assembly blueprint describe --blueprint 'Single__Machine' OR
vcs cloud-assembly blueprint describe --blueprint Single__Machine
