The vCloud Application Director CLI is a Spring Roo-based client that communicates to the vCloud Application Director server over HTTPS using REST APIs.

User accounts with the system administrator role can use the vCloud Application Director CLI to create and manage users, groups, and LDAP configurations. User accounts with the deployer roles can use the CLI to deploy or tear down applications from the cloud. See Predefined Users, Groups, and Roles.


The predefined user accounts are disabled by default. If you do not enable these accounts, you can use only the admin user. The password for the admin user is the admin password that was set the first time the appliance was started.
