SalesforceDX CLI Installation

SalesforceDX starts with the command line, so it's essential to have the ability to quickly execute any necessary command. If you need to do anything directly with the command line, you don't need to switch to 'cmd' — it's available for you in the Command Line panel. You can execute there any command you need, whether it's SFDX related commands or regular Windows commands. In addition, in case of any errors during the execution, they will be highlighted in red color, so you never miss a critical notification.

In order to work with SFDX-related functionality, you need to install the Salesforce DX Command-Line Interface on your PC. Follow these instructions:

  • if you already have the latest version of SFDX CLI installed, you don't need to do anything,
  • if you are installing the Bloom R6 version of The Welkin Suite IDE using the installer from the website, you will have an option to Install Salesforce DX CLI as a part of your installation process,
  • if you already have TWS installed and once it would be updated to the Bloom R6 version, you will need to install CLI manually from the official website.
