I was not able to use Illuminated Cloud on Mac since it required to enter Salesforce DX executable path which I don't know.

When I installed SFDX by downloading and executing installer https://developer.salesforce.com/media/salesforce-cli/sfdx-osx.pkg, it never asked me for a folder to install, so I didn't understand where it was installed.

How do I find where SFDX executable is installed to paste it here?

  • yes, I copied the answer from this question salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/272125/… and combined my previous approach and the simpler way suggested – Patlatus Aug 2 at 13:49

    Yes indeed, you shouldn't cross-post at all as it leads to several independent comment and answer streams, with a lot of redundancy and general loss of quality. If there are several suitable sites, and you don't get answers on the first, then have it migrated to another suitable one. – nohillside Aug 2 at 14:44

From https://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/272125/how-do-i-find-sfdx-cli-default-installation-folder-on-mac:

The simplest way is the type a command

which sfdx 

in Terminal.


Another (longer and more complicated) way (which I initially used) is to type command

find / -iname sfdx 

in the Terminal and search in the results for the actual path
