  • Step 1

    Make sure you installed the Cloud Foundry CLI successfully:

    Bash
    Copy
    cf --version
    

    Now you should see the release number of the CLI you are using.

  • Step 2

    Install the plugin from the OS-specific binary, using the following command:

    Bash
    Copy
    cf install-plugin -f https://github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator/multiapps-cli-plugin/releases/latest/download/multiapps-plugin.osx
    
  • Step 3

    List all Cloud Foundry CLI plugins to see whether the installation worked.

    Bash
    Copy
    cf plugins | grep multiapps   
    

    You should now see the following output:

    listed plugins

    This list shows you all the new commands you added to the CLI. E.g., now you can run cf deploy and cf mta from the command line.

  • Step 4

    Run the following command to inspect all options for the cf deploy command:

    Bash
    Copy
    cf deploy --help
    

    The output of the command will show you all available options. One of which is called "--version-rule".<br/>What values are allowed for this option?
