Astra CLI overview

The DataStax Astra Command-Line Interface (Astra CLI) is a set of commands you can use to create and manage Astra resources. Astra CLI commands are available for Astra DB and Astra Streaming. They’re designed to get you working quickly, with an emphasis on automation.

Astra CLI provides a one-stop shop for managing your Astra resources through scripts or commands in your local terminal. The capabilities include:

  • Creation and management of Astra DB and Astra Streaming artifacts.

  • Querying and data loading.

  • Organization and user management.

  • Security and token configuration.

Astra CLI makes it possible to submit commands instead of, or in addition to, using the Astra Portal and DataStax API calls.

Astra CLI features are provided especially for operators, Site Reliability Engineers (SREs), and developers who want the option of using commands when working with Astra DB databases and Astra Streaming tenants.
