Cloudera CDP Command Line Interface

Project description

# Cloudera CDP Command Line Interface

This package provides a unified command line interface to the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) control plane API.

## Prerequisites

  • Python 3.6 or higher

Earlier versions of Python are no longer supported for new releases, as of January 2021. Previous CLI releases shall continue to work under earlier Python versions.

## Installation

To install using pip from the [cdpcli PyPI project](

` $ pip install cdpcli `

To install from source:

` $ git clone $ cd cdpcli $ pip install . `

### Beta CLI

An alternative CLI exposing beta functionality is available in its own package.

` $ pip install cdpcli-beta `

Do not install both the regular and beta CLIs in the same Python environment, as they use the same entry points and therefore conflict.

Any features exposed in the beta CLI that are not available in the regular CLI are still under development. They are not yet supported, may not work, and are subject to change in incompatible ways, including removal. Do not rely on beta features for production use.

## Configuring

API calls through the CDP CLI require a key pair issued from the CDP control plane. Use the CDP console to generate keys, following [documented instructions]( Then, run cdp configure to provide the credentials to the CLI.

` $ cdp configure CDP Access Key ID [None]: xxx CDP Private Key [None]: yyy `

Credentials are stored under the “default” profile in $HOME/.cdp/credentials, using the ini file format.

### Profiles

If you need to access the API as more than one user, set up a named profile for each user. Each profile stores a separate set of credentials.

` $ cdp configure --profile my-other-user `

## Running

Basic syntax:

` cdp [options] <command> <subcommand> [parameters] `


` $ cdp iam get-user $ cdp environments describe-environments --environment-name myenv1 `

### Help

For general help, use any of these commands.

` $ cdp help $ cdp --help $ cdp # no arguments `

Most CLI commands correspond to API services. Subcommands correspond to operations in services.

  • For help on any command, run its help subcommand, or pass the –help parameter.
  • For help on any subcommand, pass the help or –help parameter.

The same help content is available in online [API documentation](

### Profiles

By default, the CLI uses credentials in the “default” profile. Use a different profile by passing the –profile option.

` $ cdp --profile my-other-user iam get-user `
