cec configure

Configure a connection to a running server and locally persist credentials for later use


Launch an interactive process to configure a connection to a running Pydio Cells server instance. By default, we use a secure OAuth2 process based on 'Authorization Code' Grant.

If necessary, you might use an alternative authorization process and/or execute this process non-interactively calling one of the defined sub-commands.

Once a connection with the server established, it stores necessary information locally, keeping the sensitive bits encrypted in the local machine keyring. If you want to forget a connection, the config file can be wiped out by calling the 'clear' subcommand.

WARNING If no keyring is defined in the local machine, all information is stored in clear text in a config file of the Cells Client working directory. In such case, do not use the 'client-auth' process.

./cec configure [flags]


  -h, --help         help for configure
      --no-keyring   Explicitly tell the tool to *NOT* try to use a keyring. Only use this flag if you really know what your are doing: some sensitive information will end up stored on your file system in clear text.
