Before you start

The CLI commands to manage API Keys allow you to bring your Arx and applications together. The API Keys created here will draw on all of the unique inputs you have created for the Arx and application that you chose.

When you create your key it is critical that you store it as it will only be displayed once. To preserve the integrity of the key, Onqlave does not keep a record of this. Do not close the final window until you have made this record!

You may need to look at the supported available commands for api keys and base configuration information for API Keys before working with API Keys via CLI.

Get base configuration information for API Keys

Before interacting with the API key, you may need to retrieve all the base information about your Arx and application. The most frequently used information when interacting with API key via CLI are IDs of Arx, application and owner
