In this lab, you use the Bluemix bx command-line interface (CLI) to work with IBM Bluemix. The bx CLI is a tool that you will use in a terminal or command window on your workstation. This lab uses the same sample application that was used in the previous lab “Create an app using Bluemix Continuous Delivery.”


  • Bluemix supported web browser
  • An IBM Bluemix account
  • The Bluemix bx (CLI).
    Note: The cygwin shell is not supported for the bx CLI on Windows. Instead, use a command prompt, powershell or git bash shell.
