The Exasol Cluster starter is used for starting and stopping Exasol Cloud clusters.
Create a new configuration of the Exasol Cluster Starter Application. Then fill in your Personal Access token, your Account ID, the host of the cluster that you wish to start/stop, and select the action you wish to perform on the cluster; either Start or Stop. Then save the configuration and run it.
You can get a Personal Access Token for authorization by going to top right side of cloud.exasol.com and clicking the icon with your initials.
Then click Personal access tokens.
Once on the Personal access token site, click Create token.
Fill in the Token name with a descriptive name, select the use & operate scope for Database, click Generate.
Now just save the token to a secure location or just to the component configuration.
You can get the host of the cluster you wish to start by clicking the three dots on the right of the cluster name, clicking Connect via tools and going to the 3rd step. There you can see the host of the cluster.
If the cluster you wish to start is not the main cluster of the database, the application will first start the main cluster and after that the cluster that you entered. This is necessary as the main cluster must be started before you start any other clusters.
If any errors occur while starting a cluster please contact Exasol support.
