Configure the Alert Logic CLI with Your Credentials
Before you can run a CLI command, you must configure the Alert Logic's CLI with your credentials.
alcli uses ~/.alertlogic/config configuration file in a user's home directory. File can contain multiple profiles. Here's an example of a configuration file that has credentials for an integration and production deployments:
[default] access_key_id=1111111111111111 secret_key=eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee global_endpoint=integration [production] access_key_id=2222222222222222 secret_key=dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd global_endpoint=production
The location of the configuration file can be also specified by setting
ALERTLOGIC_CONFIG environment variable to contain file's location.
--query option requires JMESPath language expression. See
