This update for cf-cli fixes the following issues:

cf-cli was updated: to version 6.43.0 (bsc#1132242)

Enhancements :

  • cf curl supports a new --fail flag (primarily for scripting purposes) which returns exit code 22 for server errors story
  • Improves cf delete-orphaned-routes such that it uses a different endpoint, reducing the chance of a race condition when two users are simultaneously deleting orphaned routes and associating routes with applications story
  • we've improved the speed of cf services - it now hits a single endpoint instead of making individual API calls


  • CVE-2019-3781: CF CLI does not sanitize user’s password in verbose/trace/debug.
  • Fixes issue with running cf login in verbose mode whereby passwords which contains regex were not completely redacted
  • Fixes issue whilst running commands in verbose mode refresh tokens were not completely redacted

Other Bug Fixes:

  • Updates help text for cf curlstory
  • Now refresh tokens work properly whilst using cf curl with V3 CC API endpoints story
  • Fixes performance degradation for cf services story
  • cf delete-service requires that you are targeting a space story
  • cf enable-service access for a service in an org will succeed if you have already enabled access for that service in that org story

cf-cli was updated to version 6.42.0:

Minor Enhancements:

  • updated cf restage help text and the first line in the command's output to indicate that using this command will cause app downtime story
  • updated the cf bind-route-service help text to clarify usage instructions story
  • improved an error message for cf create-service-boker to be more helpful when the CC API returns a 502 due to an invalid service broker catalog
  • upgraded to Golang 1.11.4 story
  • added a short name ue for cf unset-env story
  • updated cf marketplace command to include a new broker column to prepare for a upcoming services-related feature which will allow services to have the same name as long as they are associated with different service brokers story


  • fix for cf enable-service-access -p plan whereby when we refactored the code in CLI v6.41.0 it created service plan visibilities as part of a subsequent run of the command (the unrefactored code skipped creating the service plan visibilities); now the command will skip creating service plan visibilities as it did prior to the refactor story
  • updated the cf rename-buildpack help text which was missing reference to the -s stack flag story
  • updated help text for when users use brew search cloudfoundry-cli story
  • now when you run cf service service-instance for a route service, the route service url appears in the key value table story

Update to version 6.41.0:


  • updated cf --help to include the delete command story

Update to version 6.40.1:

Bug Fixes:

  • Updates the minimum version for the buildpacks-stacks association feature. In CLI v6.39.0, when the feature was released, we incorrectly set the minimum to cc api version as2.114. The minimum cc api version is now correctly set to 2.112. story
  • Fixes a bug with inspecting a service instance cf service service-instance, now the documentation url displays correctly for services which populate that field story

Update to version 6.40.0:

Bug Fixes:

  • Fix bug where trailing slash on cf api would break listing commands for older CC APIs story. For older versions of CC API, if the API URL had a trailing slash, some requests would fail with an "Unknown request" error. These requests are now handled properly.

Update to version 6.39.0:


  • for users on cc api 3.27, cf start is enhanced to display the new cf app v3 output. For users on cc api 3.27 or lower, users will see the same v2 output. Note that if you use v3 commands to create and start your app, if you subsequently use cf stop and cf start, the routes property in cf app will not populate even though the route exists story
  • for users on cc api 3.27, cf restart is enhanced to display the new cf app v3 output. For users on cc api 3.27 or lower, users will see the same v2 output. story
  • for users on cc api 3.27, cf restage is enhanced to display the new cf app v3 output. For users on cc api 3.27 or lower, users will see the same v2 output. story
  • improved help text for -d domains for cf push to include examples of usage story
  • cf v3-scale displays additional app information story
  • if you've created an internal domain, and it is the first domain in cc, the CLI will now ignore the internal domain and instead choose the next non-internal domain when you push an app story

Bug Fixes:

  • Fix for users on macOS attempting to brew install cf-cli the CF CLI using the unreleased master branch of Homebrew story
  • Fixes an issue whereby, due to a recent cc api change, when you execute cf push and watch the cf app command, the app display returned a 400 error story
  • Fixes a bug whereby if you logged in using client credentials, cf auth user pass --client credentials you were unable to create an org; now create-org will assign the role to the user id specified in your manifest story
  • fixes an issue introduced when we refactored cf start and as part of that work, we stopped blocking on the initial connection with the logging backend; now the CLI blocks until the NOAA connection is made, or the default dial timeout of five seconds is reached story
