ccloud api-key store¶
Use this command to register an API secret created by another process and store it locally.
When you create an API key with the CLI, it is automatically stored locally. However, when you create an API key using the UI, API, or with the CLI on another machine, the secret is not available for CLI use until you “store” it. This is because secrets are irretrievable after creation.
You must have an API secret stored locally for certain CLI commands to work. For example, the Kafka topic consume and produce commands require an API secret.
ccloud api-key store [api-key] [secret] [flags]
--resource string The resource ID of the resource the API key is for. -f, --force Force overwrite existing secret for this key. --environment string Environment ID. --context string CLI context name.
-h, --help Show help for this command. -v, --verbose count Increase verbosity (-v for warn, -vv for info, -vvv for debug, -vvvv for trace).
