You can use OpenStack documentation to help you learn to use OpenStack CLIs in the Rackspace Cloud. OpenStack documents describe general practice; you should expect to supply some Rackspace-specific details. Use your Rackspace credentials where the OpenStack examples ask for OpenStack credentials.

For example, where you are asked for OS_USERNAME, supply your Rackspace username.
