Cloudera Altus Director API clients

Cloudera Altus Director is the reliable, self-service experience for Cloudera’s enterprise data hub in the cloud - allowing enterprises to unlock all the benefits of Hadoop in the cloud, without compromising on the critical aspects of an enterprise-grade, Hadoop platform.


This repository contains the source code of the Cloudera Altus Director Java and Python API clients that can be used to interact with the Cloudera Altus Director server API to bootstrap, grow, shrink and terminate CDH clusters managed by Cloudera Manager on a cloud infrastructure. It is not required to use either client library to interact with the server API; they are offered for convenience.

API clients are generated from the server API itself. Therefore, pull requests are not accepted for them.
