Chapter 2. Installing the native Data Grid CLI as a client plugin

Data Grid provides a command line interface (CLI) compiled to a native executable that you can install as a plugin for oc clients. You can then use your oc client to:

  • Create Data Grid Operator subscriptions and remove Data Grid Operator installations.
  • Set up Data Grid clusters and configure services.
  • Work with Data Grid resources via remote shells.
