the first step in using the nebulactl CLI tool is to install it, you do that by running the following command on a 64bit Linux OS:
sudo wget https://github.com/nebula-orchestrator/nebula-cmd/raw/master/dist/nebulactl -O /usr/local/bin/nebulactl && sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/nebulactl
this install a single bin file in the /usr/local/bin path which makes it accessible from any path in the shell.
after installing "nebulactl" you have to configure it by pointing it to your cluster, you do it by running the following command
nebulactl login --username <root> --password <password> --host <nebula.host.com> --port <80> --protocol <http/https>
or if you prefer a guided questions login just run:
either of this 2 methods creates a file in ~/.nebula.json with the login details, nebulactl checks this file every time it runs a command against the nebula API, also note that the file is per user so if you have multiple users you will have to either copy this file or run the
nebulactl login command for each of them
the --help argument will give you the needed parameters for each command, most commands will also prompt interactively if a required parameter is missing to ease first time users.
