Use the gcloud CLI


This page describes how to get started with the Google Cloud CLI so you can use it to manage private connectivity configurations, connection profiles, and streams in Datastream.

The Google Cloud CLI provides the Google Cloud CLI to interact with Datastream and other Google Cloud services. The gcloud CLI uses the API to access Datastream, so you must enable the API before you can use the tool.

You can see gcloud examples in the following pages of the Datastream documentation:
