RDA Client

Installation instructions for RDA client command line utility to interact with RDA platform

RDA Client (rdac) is a command-line utility that allows you to interact with RDA Fabric and RDA Platform. rdac is pre-packaged as a native utility in the following modules. In most cases, you don't need to install rdac separately, but if you need to, jump over to Installing rdac CLI in your own environment (section)

rdac in RDA Studio

  1. Open New Terminal from the File menu

  2. Type 2 for selecting rdac option

rdac in RDA Worker

If you have installed your own RDA Worker Nodes for data processing and bot/pipeline execution in your own environment (ex: DC/Edge/On-prem) then you can also use rdac that is pre-packaged in the worker node.

  1. Find container ID of RDA worker instance using docker ps

  2. Open interactive shell into the container

  3. Use rdac

Note however that the usage of rdac in the worker is not recommended for frequent usage, as you would like to minimize interactions and load in the worker node. The preferred option is to use the rdac in Studio (see above)
