The OKD CLI exposes commands for managing your applications, as well as lower level tools to interact with each component of your system. This topic guides you through getting started with the CLI, including installation and logging in to create your first project.

With the OKD command-line interface (CLI), you can create applications and manage OKD cluster from a terminal. The CLI is ideal in situations where you:

  • Work directly with project source code
  • Script OKD Container Platform operations
  • Are restricted by bandwidth resources and can not use the web console
