Installing the Domino Command Line (CLI)

  1. Click your username at the bottom of the main menu to download the CLI installer depending on the operating system.
  2. Run the installer application depending on your operating system. Refer to Operating System Support for more information.

  3. Open a new command prompt and run:
    domino login <url>

    Replace <url> with the URL where you access Domino.

  4. When asked for your login information, use the username and password for your Domino account.

  5. You should see something like this:

    $ domino login # or the url of your domino deployment
    Enter your Domino username or email address
    > username
    Enter your password (typing will be hidden)

Congrats, you’re all set! Check out the CLI reference for documentation about using the CLI.

Operating System Support

  1. The Domino CLI does not work on headless Linux machines. You need a GUI based Linux environment for the Linux based CLI to work.
  2. There are two versions of Domino CLI for Windows, one bundled with a 32-bit JRE and another with a 64-bit JRE. The 32-bit version is deprecated and not recommended for use.
