More on the IBM Cloud Command Line - This time on macOS

So, when I tried to log in to my ICP 2.1.0.2 cluster from my Mac: -

bx pr login -a https://mycluster.icp:8443 --skip-ssl-validation -c id-mycluster-account -u admin -p admin

FAILED
'pr' is not a registered command. See 'bx help'.

So I'd correctly downloaded / installed the IBM Cloud CLI: -



which gave me this: -

bx -version

bx version 0.6.6+d4d59ab5-2018-03-20T07:49:59+00:00

but I had neglected to download/install the relevant IBM Cloud Private (ICP) Plugin.

This helped: -


which directed me to the ICP admin UI itself: -
