Install the symflow CLI


The symflow CLI is what you use to configure Sym for your organization. You'll need to be logged in to apply Terraform changes, or to list and manage Users, Domains, Resources, or Services.

That said, for the most part, you will be creating and managing Resources via Terraform, and Sym will manage your users for you via Identity Discovery.


Do you have a Sym account?

You'll need to work with the Sym team to get your organization set up with access to the Sym platform. Once you're onboarded, continue from here.

Install the CLI

To install the symflow CLI, use one of the commands below:

brew install symopsio/tap/symflow
pipx install sym-flow-cli
pip install --user sym-flow-cli
curl -LO
sudo installer -pkg sym-flow-cli-darwin-x64.pkg -target /
curl -LO
sudo dpkg -i sym-flow-cli-linux-x64.deb


We'll have to log in before we can do anything else. Sym also supports SSO, if your organization has set it up.

$ symflow login
Org slug: # enter your sym_org_slug and then follow your browser to complete login!

First-time login

If it's your first time logging into Sym, you won't have a password yet. To get one, just click "Forgot Password" on your first login. After you've created a password, you can run symflow login again to complete your setup.


Next steps

From here, we'll need to:

  1. Set up Sym's Terraform Provider ← up next
  2. Configure your Terraform to work with Sym
  3. Implement your first Flow
