Hey Carlo, thanks for reaching out.

Arrays and hashes are not supported for the Variable Substitution feature. Let us know if you have any additional questions. Thanks.

Best,

Abby

Abby,
Is inserting arrays/hashes also supported? If that's the case it may be a good idea to show it in the examples.

Hi Benjamin,

Thanks for reaching out; we will update the documentation for clarification. The partial value use case, for example, is a manifest.yml with the following:

- route: ((host)).example.com

and a variable.yml file which invokes the value by passing in the hostname:

host: test

When you push with the manifest and variable file, the route test.example.com will be created. Hope that makes sense. 

Best,

Abby

Hi Abby,

In the documentation for variable substitution, when it’s said:

Template variables can also be used as partial values, such as in:

It’s quite unclear what is meant by “partial values”, and the example doesn’t bring an illustration to this. Indeed, correct me if I’m wrong but this second example looks the same as the first one, because using --vars-file <(cat secrets.yml) should be quite the same as writing --vars-file secrets.yml.

Maybe “partial values” was a way to say that multiple --vars-file arguments can be used?

Hi all,

The CF CLI team released cf CLI v6.37.0; please see release notes for full details. 

Highlights include:
  • Variable substitution - (replaces inheritance) which allows app developers to create app manifests with values shared across all applicable environments in combination with references to environment-specific differences defined in separate files
  • Now the CLI reads username and password from environment variables
  • If you are using a API version older than 2.69.0, a warning displays asking you to update your API version - as the CLI no longer supports versions older than 2.69.0
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixes a bug whereby X-Cf-Warnings were not being unescaped when displayed to user
  • When using CF_TRACE=1, passwords are now sanitized

Let us know if you have any comments or feedback, thanks!

Best,

Abby Chau
