Elastio CLI

The Elastio CLI is a command-line interface that is used to operate software and operating systems while allowing the user to respond to visual prompts by typing single commands into the interface and receiving a reply in the same way.

The Elastio CLI can be installed on any Windows, macOS or Linux machine (either physical or virtual). More information on the supported environments can be viewed here. To use the Elastio CLI, the correct credentials to your AWS account must be configured. For this you can either attach the IAM role to an EC2 instance or install and configure the AWS CLI through a set of keys or your AWS profile. The AWS CLI is set up using the aws configure command.

The Elastio CLI is used to deploy the Elastio Cloudformation stack and Cloud Connector(s) and manage vaults, perform backups, restores, recovery point mounts and user and access token management, scan your application recovery points for security threats, etc.

Please use elastio --help to view all available commands, options, and flags.
