cec configure client-auth

Connect to the server directly using the Client Credentials


Launch an interractive process to gather necessary client information to configure a connection to a running Pydio Cells server instance.

You can typically use the static credentials (Id and Secret) defined in the "services"."pydio.grpc.auth"."staticClients" section of your server's "pydio.json" config file, and a valid userName/password with enough permissions to achieve what you want on the server.

Please beware that this sentitive information will be stored in clear text if you do not have a correctly configured and running keyring on your client machine.

You can also go through the whole process in a non-interractive manner by using the provided flags.

./cec configure client-auth [flags]


  -k, --apiKey string      OIDC Client ID
  -s, --apiSecret string   OIDC Client Secret
  -h, --help               help for client-auth
  -l, --login string       User login
  -p, --password string    User password
      --skipVerify         Skip SSL certificate verification (not recommended)
  -u, --url string         HTTP URL to server

Options inherited from parent commands

  -c, --config string   Path to the configuration file
      --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.
