User Guide: DSim Cloud CLI auth command
mdc auth[enticate] login* | logout* [options]
This command will allow you to authenticate to Metrics by opening a web browser and prompting you to provide log in credentials. The
logout option allows you to remove authentication credentials on your machine.
If you are a new user, this command will allow you to sign up and create an account with Metrics.
mdc auth login
After entering the above command, there will be a message printed to the terminal window asking you to use the web browser to continue.
A browser window will open with a dialog that looks very similar to the following:
Enter a valid email address and password and you will be authenticated to Metrics, allowing you to use the DSim Cloud CLI to create and manage your workspace.
If this is your first time using DSim Cloud, you will need to sign up for an account. For details on our Sign Up flow, see How To: Sign up to use DSim Cloud.
Once authentication is successful, a message will be printed to the terminal indicating that authentication was successful.
mdc auth logout
After executing the above command, you will be prompted to confirm the logout request and, upon entering yes, you will no longer be authenticated.
