Archive Plugins and Configurations
twilio flex:plugins:archive command provides the ability to archive a plugin, a plugin version, or a configuration. When archived, you can no longer enable the plugin for agents via the Plugins Dashboard or Plugins CLI. You can archive a configuration to prevent it from being redeployed.
Archiving a plugin or configuration is a permanent action and cannot be undone.
Compatible CLI versions
You need to install the latest version of the Flex Plugins CLI in order to use these features. If you're migrating a legacy plugin to use the new CLI, refer to our Migration Guide.
Archive a plugin
- A plugin can be archived only if it is not currently enabled within Flex.
- When a plugin is archived, none of its versions can be enabled within Flex.
- You cannot redeploy any prior release that contains the archived plugin or plugin version.
You can archive a plugin by passing its name via the
twilio flex:plugins:archive:plugin --name plugin-sample
You can archive a version of a plugin by passing the plugin name and the version via the
twilio flex:plugins:archive:plugin-version --name plugin-test --version 1.0.0
Archive a configuration
