Use the code42 profile set of commands to establish the Code42 environment you’re working within and your user information.
First, create your profile:
code42 profile create --name MY_FIRST_PROFILE --server example.authority.com --username email@example.com
Your profile contains the necessary properties for authenticating with Code42. After running
code42 profile create,
the program prompts you about storing a password. If you agree, you are then prompted to enter your password.
Your password is not shown when you do
code42 profile show. However,
code42 profile show will confirm that a
password exists for your profile. If you do not set a password, you will be securely prompted to enter a password each
time you run a command.
You can add multiple profiles with different names and the change the default profile with the
code42 profile use MY_SECOND_PROFILE
When you use the
--profile flag with other commands, such as those in
security-data, that profile is used
instead of the default profile. For example,
code42 security-data search -b 2020-02-02 --profile MY_SECOND_PROFILE
To see all your profiles, do:
code42 profile list
Profiles with Multi-Factor Authentication
If your Code42 user account requires multi-factor authentication, the MFA token can either be passed in with the
option, or if not passed you will be prompted to enter it before the command executes.
