Today, we’re announcing the integration of the Heroku CLI with Amazon Q Developer. This integration, a result of our expanded Salesforce/AWS partnership, enables Amazon Q Developer command line suggestions of Heroku commands. This integration empowers Heroku users to auto-complete commands, thereby saving time and eliminating error-prone manual configurations of apps.

Developers configure and manage their applications through a command line interface (CLI), especially during development when working within their integrated development environment (IDE).
