Command: configure

The configure command is used to setup the local machine to be able to manage data warehouse environments and clusters.

The configuration can use a master token, or an environment token for managing them. The difference is in the allowed scope.

A master token, as the name implies allows management of all the environments and clusters. The environment token reduces the scope to a single environment that the token was generated for.

The Client ID and Master Token is available using the web console.


edw configure

Example: Configure using a master token

Select M to use the Master Token. You will be prompted to enter the Master Token and Client ID:

$ edw configure
Token type [M = Master][E = Environment]: M
Token: 1234abcd...
Client ID: 1234-...-abcd

Example: Configure using an environment token

Only the Environment/Clusters corresponding to the Environment Token entered can be managed when using the Environment Token. Users with access to this token allows them to manage specific environments, e.g. a user is authorized to manage dev environment, but not the production environment.

Select E to use the Environment Token. You will be prompted to enter the environment token to use.

$ edw configure
Token type [M = Master][E = Environment]: E
Token: 45678....
