Looking for more UI and less CLI? Try out the new Siera Desktop application.

Siera is the most convenient way for self-sovereign identity (SSI) developers to interact with SSI agents.

  • Environments to easily manage configuration for multiple projects and agents
  • Automations that you can perform against an agent
  • Mock data so that you can focus on the important task of building your application instead of other foobar (coming soon 🚧)

If you are looking for more information about the concepts, example code and tutorials on how to use the CLI we recommend you check out our extensive docs.


Heres how to install Siera using the most popular package managers. For advanced installation options, binaries and troubleshooting we recommend checking out the installation guide.

Getting started

In order to work with Siera an agent needs to be configured. With the following command you connect with our community agent and can access all the functionality.

siera configuration add --default

This command will set up the community agent. To set up your own agent or use our multi-tenant agent to get your own environment, see the set up guide.

If you are getting started with the tool we recommend enabling informational logs by passing the --verbose (or -v) flag.

To see all actions simply use the --help or -h flag or see the feature overview.


We intend to support multiple versions of the Aries agent. See the CLI help siera --help for a list of actions we currently support.
