The Alert Logic Command Line Utility (CLI).

Project description

Installing the Alert Logic CLI

The pip package manager for Python is used to install, upgrade and remove Alert Logic CLI.

Installing the current version of the Alert Logic CLI

Alert Logic CLI only works on Python 3.7 or higher. Please follow this instructions on how to install Python on your system:

Use pip3 to install the Alert Logic CLI

$ pip3 install alcli --upgrade --user

Make sure to use --user to to install the program to a subdirectory of your user directory to avoid modifying libraries used by your operating system.

Upgrading to the latest version of the Alert Logic CLI

We regularly introduce support for new Alert Logic services. We recommend that you check installed packages version and upgrade to the latest version regularly

$ alcli --version

$ pip3 list -o
Package    				Version  Latest   Type 
---------- 				-------- -------- -----
alcli     				1.0.1 	 1.0.2 	  sdist
alertlogic-sdk-python   1.0.2 	 1.0.2    sdist

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.

By default, 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:



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 for language tutorial.
