Assuming your configuration is correct, the CLI interface doesn’t need anything special to make authentication work. The following only applies to retrieving a client instance in Python.
from pynsot.client import AuthTokenClient, EmailHeaderClient, get_api_client # This is the preferred method, returning the appropriate client according # to your dotfile if no arguments are supplied. # # Alteratively you can override options by passing url, auth_method, and # other kwargs. See `help(get_api_client) for more details c = get_api_client() # OR using the client objects directly email = 'jathan@localhost' secret_key = 'qONJrNpTX0_9v7H_LN1JlA0u4gdTs4rRMQklmQF9WF4=' url = 'http://localhost:8990/api' c = AuthTokenClient(url, email=email, secret_key=secret_key) # Email Header Client domain = 'localhost' auth_header = 'X-NSoT-Email' c = EmailHeaderClient( url, email=email, default_domain=domain, auth_header=auth_header, )
