Tacker Admin Guide

Tacker Admin Guide

There are two Command-Line Interfaces (CLIs) which support the Tacker API: OpenStackClient (OSC) and tacker CLI <tacker>.

Note

Deprecated: ‘tacker’ command line is deprecated, will be deleted after Rocky is released. Please use ‘openstack’ client command line instead.
