CLI for the ServiceX Data Server

Project description

ServiceX Command Line Tool

This is a tool for setting up the ServiceX cluster.

Currently, its only function is to automatically create a Kubernetes Secret to securely store your grid certs and passphrase, and to clear this Secret.


The tool is available on pypi:

pip install servicex-cli


To list the version of the servicex cli installed:

servicex version


The ServiceX CLI can be used to initialize ServiceX as follows:

servicex [--namespace <namespace>] init [certs|all] [--cert-dir <cert dir>]

Run servicex init to set up everything, or specify one or more components for partial setup (e.g. servicex init certs). Certs are the only component currently supported.

Grid Certs

By default, the CLI will find certs in .globus in your home directory. You can override this by providing a --cert-dir command line option.

By default the secret will be created in the default namespace. You can override this by providing a --namespace command line option (this must precede the init command).

You will be prompted for your grid cert passphrase. This will not be echoed to the screen, but will be stored in the Kubernetes Secret.


If you want to remove the installed Secrets from the cluster then you can use:

servicex [--namespace <namespace>] clear [certs|all]

Run servicex clear to clear all Secrets, or specify one or more components (e.g. servicex clear certs). Specify a --namespace argument which precedes the clear command to remove the Secrets from that namespace.
