Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-367) CLI
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 18:24:05 GMT


Jie Feng commented on CLOUDSTACK-367:

+1 for having a good CLI. 

>From a CloudStack user perspective (not admin), I found that the UI does not expose all
the functions in the API. And it is not easy for a user to create signed API calls. I have
not used the existing CLI tool because it is only referenced in docs, but unclear where to
find it.

One question: why not expose all the functions in the API through CLI?

> The auto-generated CLI that CloudStack has had is not user friendly and not in widespread
> We should design a "real" CLI tool (or set of commands) that exposes a significant chunk
of both the end user and admin API functions.   When this is done we should just remove the
old CLI tool.
> I think end user is higher priority but both should be done.
