WP-CLI Commands

The WP-CLI Commands panel in the VIP Dashboard displays a log of all WP-CLI commands that were run on an environment. WP-CLI commands are run using the VIP-CLI vip wp command.


Users must have access to the VIP Dashboard to view the WP-CLI Commands panel.

To access the WP-CLI Commands panel:

Each logged command displays the following related information:

  • User: The user that initiated the command. Users labeled “VIP” are members of the VIP Support team.
  • Time (UTC): Timestamp for when the command was initiated.
  • Duration: Time elapsed until the command was completed, canceled, or errored.
