Knife Cloud Plugins
A knife plugin is a set of one (or more) subcommands that can be added to knife to support additional functionality that is not built-in to the base set of knife subcommands. Many of the knife plugins are built by members of the Chef community and several of them are built and maintained by Chef.
- The same common options used by knife subcommands can also be used by knife plug-ins
- A knife plugin can make authenticated API requests to the Chef server
