Webinar - How to use ClusterControl from the command line and integrate with your DevOps tools

Art van Scheppingen

Join us for our new webinar on “How to use ClusterControl from the command line” on Tuesday, May 30th!

In this webinar we will walk you through the ClusterControl command line toolset capabilities and demonstrate its main functions and DevOps integration aspects.

How to use ClusterControl from the command line

The Severalnines command line interface offers an open source alternative for the web based ClusterControl User Interface on the command line. You can perform almost any deployment, management or scaling task from the command line; any changes made are also visible in the web UI and vice versa.

The command line client opens up many possibilities to integrate ClusterControl into your infrastructure or development cycle. You can integrate the client easily with existing deployment automation tools like Ansible, Puppet and Chef. You will be able to enrich your existing chatbot to interface with ClusterControl or make use of Severalnines’ chatbot called CCBot. The command line client can also create output in various formats, including json, to make integration with any framework easy.

With new installations from ClusterControl 1.4.1 onwards the Severalnines ClusterControl command line interface will be installed by default. You will be able to install the command line manually and use it with existing ClusterControl installations up from version 1.4.1.

To ensure your command line client is secure, we use are using TLS between the client and the ClusterControl backend. This ensures all your commands, jobs and stats will be transported and executed securely.
