Documentation for NetworkManager Command Line Interface nmcli

The primary reference for nmcli are the manual pages nmcli(1) and nmcli-examples(5). For a quick reference, the user can type nmcli [help] to print the supported options and commands. The help parameter can also be used to obtain a more detailed description for the individual commands. For example nmcli connection help and nmcli connection add help show a description for the possible connection operations and for how to add connections, respectively.

The newest version of the manual page can be found on nmcli.1 and nmcli-examples.5.

Interactive Mode

The interactive mode can be invoked with nmcli connection edit which shows a command prompt and awaits user input. In interactive mode there is also the help command that prints informations about the available commands for connection editing.
