Chapter 1. Overview

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

  • Working directly with project source code.
  • Scripting OpenShift Container Platform 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.
