confluent login


Log in to Confluent Cloud using your email and password, or non-interactively using the CONFLUENT_CLOUD_EMAIL and CONFLUENT_CLOUD_PASSWORD environment variables.

Log in to a specific Confluent Cloud organization using the --organization-id flag, or by setting the environment variable CONFLUENT_CLOUD_ORGANIZATION_ID.

Log in to Confluent Platform with your username and password, or non-interactively using CONFLUENT_PLATFORM_USERNAME, CONFLUENT_PLATFORM_PASSWORD, CONFLUENT_PLATFORM_MDS_URL, and CONFLUENT_PLATFORM_CA_CERT_PATH. In a non-interactive login, CONFLUENT_PLATFORM_MDS_URL replaces the --url flag, and CONFLUENT_PLATFORM_CA_CERT_PATH replaces the --ca-cert-path flag.

Even with the environment variables set, you can force an interactive login using the --prompt flag.
