    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for writing in. Are you specifically looking for a CLI for Terra? If so, FISS would be your best bet, which is a programmatic interface for Terra. This will allow you to submit Terra workflows via command line.

    If you're interested in seeing or working with the low-level API, you can find those here:

    To use them in the UI, please ensure you authorize your account by clicking the lock icon, checking the boxes, and hitting Authorize before executing any commands.

    If neither of these quite fit the bill for what you're after, please write us back with a few more details and we'll be happy to see what options are available.

    Kind regards,
