When accessing Rapid.Space master, the client is identified through X.509 certificates. This certificates are issued by the Rapid.Space master for a user. In order to automate configuration of these certificates for the client, an easy process has been set. Rapid.Space master provides a token to the user which gives it to the configure client to be used to retrieve the certificates and install them. Once these steps are completed the user can access Rapid.Space master information through command line tool.
Click Login Account on Rapid.Space Panel
Click Token from the page header
Click Proceed from the page header
Copy provided Token
In your terminal, run the following command
$ slapos configure client
Enter the token and press enter. Your client is configured.
After running successfully, the command will let you know where it has stored the client configuration. By default this configuration contains only the Master URL and the path to the X.509 certificated used to identify you. It can be extended to add alias for supplying and request Software Release and Instances easily.
Running the following command must return the following content:
$ ls ~/.slapos/ client.crt client.key slapos-client.cfg
After being run successfully, the x.509 are stored in the "~/.slapos/" folder. Thanks to them, you will be able to start managing your account from command line and the Slapconsole. With Slapconsole you can request and manage your instances and install Software Releases on network nodes as if they were managed through the SlapOS Master Dashboard.
