3 - Install Tab Completions

To generate shell completion scripts for Immuta CLI commands, run immuta completion [bash|zsh|fish|powershell]. You can opt to specify -h, --help, or help for completions for instructions on installing tab completions for Bash, Zsh, Fish, and PowerShell commands and flags.

Use the tabs below for specific instructions for each of these shells.

Bash

  1. Install bash-completion https://github.com/scop/bash-completion.

  2. Add this to your ~/.bash_profile:

    eval "$(immuta completion bash)"
    

Zsh

  1. Generate an _immuta completion script and save it in your $fpath:

    immuta completion zsh > /usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions/_immuta
    
  2. Ensure that the following is present in your ~/.zshrc:

    autoload -U compinit
    compinit -i
    

Fish

Generate an immuta.fish completion script:

immuta completion fish > ~/.config/fish/completions/immuta.fish

PowerShell

  1. Run immuta completion powershell | Out-String | Invoke-Expression.

  2. To load completions for every new session, run

    immuta completion powershell > immuta.ps1
    
  3. Source this immuta.ps1 from your PowerShell profile.

The exact configuration file locations might vary based on your system. Make sure to restart your shell before you test whether completions are working.
