The AMPLIFY Command Line Interface (ACLI) is a unified command line interface provides a single entry-point for multiple external CLI's and the Axway AMPLIFY platform. External CLI's are registered with the ACLI (via a config file) and are responsible for all application logic. 

With the ACLI, you can:

  • Install and manage additional Axway command line programs
  • Authenticate against the Axway platform
  • Configure your local AMPLIFY development settings
  • Automate AMPLIFY CLI commands from other scripting languages
  • Apply authentication credentials per command


ACLI, aside from many other features, provides a main entry point for invoking other local CLI programs. These other CLIs are called extensions. Extension CLIs can be a npm package, a single Node.js file, or a native executable.

With the exception of cli-kit enabled CLIs, all extension CLIs are run as subprocesses and the AMPLIFY CLI banner is suppressed. The only indication an extension CLI has that it's being run by the AMPLIFY CLI is the AMPLIFY_CLI environment variable containing the AMPLIFY CLI's version.

cli-kit enabled CLIs are directly loaded via require() and the exported CLI structure is merged with the parent CLI command context tree. This promotes efficient reuse parser state and provides a seamless user experience.

If an extension is a npm package, the AMPLIFY CLI will automatically invoke it using the Node.js executable. Specifying the extension as node /path/to/script.js will treat the extension as a native executable.


Node.js8.10.0 or later

6.6.0 or later


To install AMPLIFY CLI (ACLI), execute this command: [sudo] npm i -g @axway/amplify-cli
