The web dashboard is a simple and convenient way to interact with the Catalyst Cloud. It can be found at https://dashboard.cloud.catalyst.net.nz.
The dashboard provides a friendly and simplified interface for commonly used services and functionality available on the Catalyst Cloud. There are however more advanced features that are only available via the Command Line Interface (CLI) or by interacting with our APIs.
When a new feature is introduced to the Catalyst Cloud, it is first exposed via a REST API, followed by the Command Line Interface and finally the web dashboard. It usually takes a few months for it to reach the dashboard.
The major appeal of using the dashboard is it requires no programming expertise or familiarity with command line tools. Another advantage is that the dashboard is accessible from anywhere (not restricted to specific IP addresses like the APIs).
