cec config add token

Configure Authentication using a Personal Access Token



Configure your Cells Client to connect to your distant server using a Personal Access Token. A token can be generated with the 'token' command for a given user on the server side (not in this client), see 'cells admin user token --help' for further details.

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

This is the preferred way to handle authentication between Cells and your client.
