NAME

manage-credentials - a tool to create (and manage) credentials which are used to access launchpad via the API.  

SYNOPSIS

manage-credentials create -c <consumer> [--email <email> --password <password>] [--service <staging|edge>]
manage-credentials -h  

DESCRIPTION

manage-credentials is a tool to create (and manage) credentials which are used to access Launchpad via the API.

Currently this tool can be used to create a token with or without using the web UI. In the future, once related methods are available through the API, this tool can also be used to manage tokens in launchpad and on the users local machine.

 

OPTIONS

Listed below are the command line options for requestsync:
-h
Display a help message and exit.
-c --consumer
-e --email <email>
Your email address as registered on Launchpad.
-p --password <password>
Your Launchpad password.
-s --service <edge|staging>
If we should use the edge or staging root of the Launchpad API.
--cache
Where to store the cache.
-o
Which file we should save the credentials to. By default manage-credentials writes the credentials tokens to the ~/.cache/lp_credentials/ directory.
-l --level <number>
A number representing the access-level you wish to give to the new Launchpad token. 0 is unauthorized, 1 is read public data, 2; write public data, 3; read private data and 4; write private data.

 

EXAMPLE USAGE

To get Launchpad tokens using manage-credentials, run the following command:
manage-credentials create -c CONSUMER --level 2

This will open your web browser with a Launchpad login page.

If you intend to use manage-credentials for Ubuntu development (such as
the ubuntu-dev-tools package). Please be sure to run the following:

manage-credentials create -c ubuntu-dev-tools -l 2
