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.


For easier integration with Acquia environment use the pull command. This allows you to easily bring your assets (db, files, and code) down to your local environment quickly without manually running through the steps.
