If a CLI command method name contains uppercase characters, CLI arguments are not properly resolved because ReflectionService won't find the actual method if you don't call the command in the correct case.

A todo comment for CommandController::resolveCommandMethodName() already states

@todo Find exact case of command method!

To be in sync with the Web request handling, this shouldn't happen in the controller though, but in the CLI request:

public function getControllerCommandName() {
    return $this->controllerCommandName;

public function getControllerCommandName() {
    $controllerObjectName = $this->getControllerObjectName();
    if ($controllerObjectName !== '' && ($this->controllerCommandName === strtolower($this->controllerCommandName)))  {
        $controllerClassName = $this->objectManager->getClassNameByObjectName($controllerObjectName);
        $commandMethodName = $this->controllerCommandName . 'Command';
        foreach (get_class_methods($controllerClassName) as $existingMethodName) {
            if (strtolower($existingMethodName) === strtolower($commandMethodName)) {
                $this->controllerCommandName = substr($existingMethodName, 0, -7);
    return $this->controllerCommandName;

should do the trick, but I failed injecting the objectManager (for compile time commands)

[FEATURE] Shorthand command commands and arguments

This allows to type just controllername:commandname if this uniquely
identifies a package / controller /command method in the system.
Hence you can just type ./flow3 kickstart:package Foo.Bar

A second feature added is that named (required) arguments can be
specified without the argument name (like the package key Foo.Bar
above) as long as all required arguments are specified that way and
in the correct order. Optional arguments must always be named and
specified before the named arguments.

The CLI request now also provides a getExceedingArguments() method and
this fixes a small bug related to camel cased controller names.
