With the DX CLI you can't deploy certain individual files - ex. aura and lightning components. You have to use syntax like

sfdx force:source:deploy -m AuraDefinitionBundle:<aura bundle name>,ApexClass:<some class name> and so on.

Is there any definitive list of all possible types of 'prefixes' like AuraDefinitionBundle: in SFDC docs? I've not yet come across one on https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.sfdx_cli_reference.meta/sfdx_cli_reference/cli_reference.htm



You can use any of the types in the Metadata Types documentation. There is mostly a 1:1 relationship to those metadata types for the force:source:retrieve command. Settings are kind of an exception (e.g. Address Settings would be retrieved using Settings:Address), but I think that's the only one.

Edit: Updated Link. The types are located in the left nav menu.
