CLI for Enterprise Cloud 2.0

Project description

Enterprise Cloud CLI (a.k.a eclcli) is an OpenStackClient based command-line client for NTT Communications’ Enterprise Cloud 2.0 that brings the command set for Baremetal, Compute, SSS, Image, Network, Block Storage and various other APIs together in a single shell with a uniform command structure.

The primary goal is to provide a unified user experience for various services provide in ECL2.0 through a uniform command structure.

Getting Started

Enterprise Cloud CLI can be installed from PyPI using pip.

$ pip install eclcli

Yet it is strongly advised to use virtualenv to avoid conflicts with system packages, in short:

$ virtualenv .venv
$ source .venv/bin/activate
$ pip install --upgrade eclcli

For experienced users we suggest using pyenv with pyenv-virtualenv plugin:


Before you are able to use CLI you must configure it.

The CLI is configured via command-line, environment variables and ~/.config/ecl/clouds.yaml file.

Authentication using username/password is most commonly used.

$ export OS_USERNAME=<username>
$ export OS_PASSWORD=<password>
$ export OS_TENANT_ID=<tenant_id>
$ export OS_AUTH_URL=<auth_url>
$ export OS_PROJECT_DOMAIN_ID=default
$ export OS_USER_DOMAIN_ID=default

In certain cases it may be more convenient to use file based configuration using file ~/.config/ecl/clouds.yaml.

For more information see ECL tutorial page. Notice, though, that you may need to use –os-cloud option parameter to specify which credentials to use from the file.

Listing command references

There are a few variants on getting help. A list of global options are supported with --help.

$ ecl --help

There is also a help command that can be used to get help text for a specific command.

$ ecl help baremetal server create


$ ecl command list
# Returns all available commands

$ ecl baremetal server list
# Returns list of baremetal servers

$ ecl help baremetal
# Returns help for any command


Please find more usage documentation on official site.
