Deployment Shell Access

:wave: Hey content creators!

We’re back at it with another blog bounty! We’ve been on a brief hiatus preparing for Testnet 3 and Mainet 3 upgrades, but we have a doozy for you to review and participate in!

What is Deployment Shell Access? Does it have something to do with the migration patterns of Turtles? Or is it the ability to execute a command in an Akash deployment? You tell us!

The ability to remotely execute a command in an Akash deployment, access the deployment’s shell, and remote copy a file into a deployment are features that have existed for some time and are documented here.

However, we frequently receive questions regarding shell access ability and we’re hoping that you will be able to assist us in supporting developers looking for more information about deployment shell access.

We’re offering up a bounty for the best written blog post that details the use of the remote command execution and deployment shell access procedures and capabilities.
