CLI Reference


The Fusebit CLI is built on Node.js, and v10+ is required. After installing Node.js, run the following command:

npm install -g @fusebit/cli


To start using the CLI against your deployment, you will need a one-time initialization token, which will be provided during onboarding or when you are given access.

fuse init {initialization-token}

After the command completes, a local profile is created and stored on your machine under ~/.fusebit. The profile contains private connection information that enables the CLI to communicate with the Fusebit service, and should not be shared.

A profile can also optionally specify a Fusebit boundary and function, which will result in all commands that take those as parameters to default to the values provided in the profile. If you frequently work within the same boundary or on the same function, this is a useful way to save time. Multiple profiles can be created with combinations of boundary and function defaults via the fuse profile command.


The Fusebit CLI supports the following top-level commands. Each command displays further information when invoked with no parameters:



fuse init

Initialize the CLI with a one-time token provided by account administrator

fuse function

Manage functions, view function logs, download functions for local development

To update the Fusebit CLI to the latest version, use:

To uninstall the Fusebit CLI, use the following command:

npm uninstall -g @fusebit/cli

For security reasons, you may also choose to remove any profiles that were stored locally:

rm -r ~/.fusebit
