To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action create_app_on_managed_play_store


It is recommended to add the above action into your Fastfile, however sometimes you might want to run one-offs. To do so, you can run the following command from your terminal

fastlane run create_app_on_managed_play_store

To pass parameters, make use of the : symbol, for example

fastlane run create_app_on_managed_play_store parameter1:"value1" parameter2:"value2"

It's important to note that the CLI supports primitive types like integers, floats, booleans, and strings. Arrays can be passed as a comma delimited string (e.g. param:"1,2,3"). Hashes are not currently supported.

It is recommended to add all fastlane actions you use to your Fastfile.
