The orka config command in the Orka CLI. This command is used for basic service configuration.


This command lets you set the API URL, the license key, and the output style.

orka config


orka config -a <ORKA_API_URL> -l <ORKA_LICENSE_KEY> --output-style <OUTPUT-STYLE> -y


  • (Required) For URL, provide the service endpoint for your Orka environment in the following format: http://<orka-service-endpoint-ip> or https://<orka-custom-domain>.


What's your Orka endpoint?

You can get the IP for your Orka endpoint from your IP Plan.
For clusters initially deployed with Orka 2.1+, it's the .20 address for your Private-1 network.
For clusters initially deployed before Orka 2.1, it's the .100 address for your Private-1 network.
Usually, or You need to use http with the IP.

To get the custom domain for your Orka cluster, if enabled:

  1. Log into your MacStadium account.
  2. Go to Subscriptions (from the top right corner) and select your Orka cluster.
  3. In the Subscription & Plan details, find your custom domain at the bottom. If you don't see a custom domain field, it's not enabled for your environment yet.
    You need to use https with your custom domain.

Note that you can use both http://<orka-IP> and https://<orka-custom-domain> in your workflows.


Using a custom domain?

If you're using OpenConnect to access your Orka cluster via VPN, you need to add a DNS server to your network configuration.

If you're using Cisco AnyConnect on macOS or Linux, you're already set and you don't need to make any changes. If you're using Cisco AnyConnect on Windows, you need to add a DNS server.

  • (Optional) For License key, provide your Orka license key as provided in your IP Plan or by administrator.
