mdc auth login [options]
Most commands of the DSim Cloud CLI (other than help and the
auth) command itself require a user to be authenticated, before executing.
mdc auth login command will allow users to authenticate to Metrics by opening a web browser and prompting users to provide log in credentials.
If you are a new user, this command will also allow you to sign up and create an account with Metrics.
During authentication, the terminal where this command is executed is blocked from entering further commands until the authentication process has been completed.
After authentication occurs, a
~/.config/metrics-ca (MacOS/Linux) or
%APPDATA%/metrics-ca/ (Windows) will be created on the users' local machine that contains authentication information. This directory should not be modified by users and, if it is, users will need to re-authenticate to Metrics by running the
mdc auth login command again.
NOTE: If a user, for any reason, exits the authentication process prematurely (e.g. Ctrl+C at the terminal window), their credentials will be removed from their machine. Users will be required to re-authenticate to continue using DSim Cloud.
