ECE-Tools Package

The ECE-Tools package is a set of scripts and tools designed to manage and deploy the Commerce application. The ece-tools package simplifies many processes, such as managing cron jobs, verifying project configuration, and applying Adobe patches and hot fixes. You can view and contribute to the open-source ECE-Tools code repository on GitHub.

If you use a version of Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure that does not contain the ece-tools package, then you must perform a one-time upgrade to your cloud project to remove deprecated packages. If you currently use the ece-tools package and you need to update it, see Update the ECE-Tools package.

The ece-tools package is compatible with Adobe Commerce—starting with version 2.1.4—and contains scripts and Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure commands designed to help manage your code and automatically build and deploy your projects.

The following lists the available ece-tools commands:

php ./vendor/bin/ece-tools list

Build and deploy

The ece-tools package contains commands to perform operations for the build, deploy, and post-deploy stages of launching your Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure application. For example, the php ./vendor/bin/ece-tools build command begins the application build process.

By default, these ece-tools commands are in the hooks property of the configuration file.

Docker configuration generator

The ece-tools package includes a dependency for the magento/magento-cloud-docker package, which provides functionality and configuration files for Docker images to launch a Docker development environment for Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure. You can also run Cloud Docker for Commerce as a stand-alone package. See Docker development.

Services, routes, and variables

You can use the ece-tools package to display detailed information about the Base64-encoded Cloud variables used in any Cloud environment. The following command shows all services, routes, and variables.

php ./vendor/bin/ece-tools env:config:show

To display a specific set of information, use the following format:

php ./vendor/bin/ece-tools env:config:show <option>
  • services—Displays the relationship data from the MAGENTO_CLOUD_RELATIONSHIPS environment variable, defined in the services.yaml file.
  • routes—Displays the configured routes for the project using the MAGENTO_CLOUD_ROUTES environment variable.
  • variables—Displays the configured variables for the project using the MAGENTO_CLOUD_VARIABLES environment variable.

Sample output for the services option:

Magento Cloud Services:
| Service Configuration             | Value                            |
| database:                                                            |
| host                              |                        |
| password                          | <password>                       |
| port                              | 3306                             |
| opensearch:                                                          |
| host                              |                        |
| port                              | 9200                             |

Verify environment configuration

There is a set of verification commands available to help evaluate the configuration of your project. See Smart wizards in the Optimize deployment section for a detailed description of each wizard command. The wizard:ideal-state command runs automatically during the build phase. To verify the ideal state of your project:

php ./vendor/bin/ece-tools wizard:ideal-state
You must run the wizard:ideal-state command in the remote Cloud environment. The command always returns the The configured state is not ideal error when run in the local development environment.

Sample output:

Ideal state is configured

See Release notes for ece-tools.

Adobe patches and custom patches

The ece-tools package includes a dependency for the magento/magento-cloud-patches package, which delivers Adobe patches and hot fixes that improve the integration of all Adobe Commerce versions with Cloud environments and supports quick delivery of critical fixes. The `` also delivers custom patches that you add to your Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure project. See Apply patches.
