ionic link

Connect local apps to Ionic

$ ionic link [id]

Link apps on Appflow to local Ionic projects with this command.

If the id argument is excluded, this command will prompt you to select an app from Appflow.

Appflow uses a git-based workflow to manage app updates. During the linking process, select GitHub (recommended) or Appflow as a git host. See our documentation for more information.

Ultimately, this command sets the id property in ./ionic.config.json, which marks this app as linked.

If you are having issues linking, please get in touch with our Support.


The Appflow ID of the app to link (e.g. a1b2c3d4)
