CF CLI v6.43.0 Released Today

Thomas Viehman <tviehman@...>

Hey everyone,

The CF CLI team released cf CLI v6.43.0 today; please see release notes for full details.

Highlights Include

Multi-Service Registration epic

CF now allows multiple service brokers to offer services with the same name and or to have the same catalogs. (However, brokers themselves must still be given a unique name.)

Note: Multi-service registration is only supported on CC API version 2.125.0 or greater.

Users can specify which broker to use with a new -b flag, which is available on the following commands:

  • cf create-service
  • cf enable-service-access
  • cf disable-service-access
  • cf purge-service-offering
  • cf service - now display broker names
  • cf marketplace now display broker names

Important Note: If you have two service instances with the same name, the commands above will now require the -b flag to disambiguate which service instance and broker you want to operate on.

For more information: For more information regarding this feature and other services-related work in this release, reach out to cf-services-api@... or #sapi on Cloud Foundry Slack.


  • 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

Minimum Version Cleanup

Our minimum version policy changed in January 2019 to support CC API 2.100/3.35. This release removes code which support CC API below those versions. story

Bug Fixes


  • 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

32-bit systems

  • Fixes a bug for users on 32-bit systems where the CLI would fail to unmarshall responses from the server because the response contained integer values that, when unmarshalled, would overflow 32-bit integers. For example, now users on 32-bit systems, can now set their memory usage larger than 2GB for cf push. See the list of commands below which we've applied the fix for. story story
