confluent completion


Use this command to print the shell completion code for the specified shell (Bash/Zsh only). The shell code must be evaluated to provide interactive completion of confluent commands.

Install Bash completions on macOS:
  1. Install Homebrew (

  2. Install Bash completions using the brew command:

    brew install bash-completion
  3. Update your Bash profile:

    echo '[[ -r "$(brew --prefix)/etc/profile.d/" ]] && . "$(brew --prefix)/etc/profile.d/"' >> ~/.bash_profile
  4. Run the following command to install auto completion:

    confluent completion bash > $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion.d/confluent
Install Bash completions on Linux:
  1. Install Bash completion:

    sudo apt-get install bash-completion
  2. Set the confluent completion code for Bash to a file that’s sourced on login:

    confluent completion bash > /etc/bash_completion.d/confluent
  3. Load the confluent completion code for Bash into the current shell:

    source /etc/bash_completion.d/confluent
  4. Add the source command above to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile to enable completions for new terminals.

Install Zsh completions:

Zsh looks for completion functions in the directories listed in the fpath shell variable.

  1. Put the confluent completion code for Zsh into a file in one the fpath directories, preferably one of the functions directories. For example:

    confluent completion zsh > ${fpath[1]}/_confluent
  2. Enable Zsh completions:

    autoload -U compinit && compinit
  3. Add the autoload command in your ~/.zshrc to enable completions for new terminals. If you encounter error messages about insecure files, you can resolve by running the chown command to change the _confluent file to the same user:group as the other files in ${fpath[1]}/.
