cec config add client-auth

Connect to the server using Client Credentials



Configure your Cells Client to connect to your distant server using Client Credentials. Note that this procedure is less secure than the other ones (using OAuth2 or a Personal Access Token).

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


This command launches an interactive process that gather necessary information to configure your connection to a running Cells server. You must provide a valid login and password for a user with enough permissions to achieve what you want on the server.

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