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

The admin user uses the Application Services CLI to register the Application Services appliance with the vRealize Automation server. User accounts with the application publisher and deployer role can use the CLI to deploy or tear down applications from the cloud. For information about user roles, see Setting Up Users and Groups.


The password for the admin user is the admin password that was set the first time the appliance was started.

Application Services User Names and Passwords Must Be ISO-8859-1 Compliant

Although the Application Services user interface supports the unicode character set for user name and password values, the Application Services CLI only supports the ISO-8859-1 character set. If you intend to use the Application Services CLI, use Application Services user name and password values that are compliant with the ISO-8859-1 character set.
