With the Azure Red Hat OpenShift command line interface (CLI), you can create applications and manage Azure Red Hat OpenShift projects from a terminal. The CLI is ideal in situations where you are:

  • Working directly with project source code.

  • Scripting Azure Red Hat OpenShift operations.

  • Restricted by bandwidth resources and cannot use the web console.

The CLI is available using the oc command:

$ oc <command>

See Get Started with the CLI for installation and setup instructions.
