The Cassandra Query Language SHell (CQLSH) is a command line shell for interacting with your database through Cassandra Query Language (CQL). This tool provides a useful interface for accessing the database and issuing CQL commands.
Each DataStax Astra database includes an embedded CQL shell instance. In the DataStax Astra console, navigate to your database and click the CQL Console tab to open a CQLSH instance that is connected to your database. Issue CQL commands directly to your Astra database without navigating outside of your browser.

Once you open the CQL shell in Astra, you will automatically be signed in and connected to your database.
