Service OS CLI features and limitations


The Service OS CLI provides basic shell functionality that allows you to execute commands and pass arguments to those commands only. The following features are not available:
  • Input/output redirection (<, >, >>)

  • Job control (&, fg, bg)

  • Process piping (|)

  • File globbing (\*)


Even though the Service OS CLI does not provide file globbing capabilities, some commands may provide this functionality internally. An example is the ls command.

The following common features are available:
  • Command history (Up Arrow) and search (Ctrl-R)

  • Tab completion for file and folder names (not CLI commands)

  • Command abort using Ctrl-C
