Acquia Drush commands

Using Acquia Cloud Drush commands

Acquia Cloud Drush commands allow you to use all features of the Acquia Cloud API on the command line.

Commands are pre-installed in cli container. Note: required docksal/cli version: 2.1.0+.


Follow the official docs to generate your Acquia Cloud API key.

Add your email and key to $HOME/.docksal/docksal.env:


Refresh cli service configuration with fin project start. This will inject the values into cli and generate the credentials file (/home/docker/.acquia/cloudapi.conf) inside cli.

Use fin drush <ac-command> from the host or drush <ac-command> inside cli.

Please refer to the official Acquia Cloud API for usage details.

Note: It is also possible to add/override these values via .docksal/docksal.env and .docksal/docksal-local.env at the project level. Keep in mind, .docksal/docksal.env is a shared configuration file and should be committed to git. .docksal/docksal-local.env, on the other hand, can be used for local overrides and should be excluded from git. As such, it is best to use .docksal/docksal-local.env for any personal keys and tokens configured at the project level.
