Most of the configuration is done out of the box.

Setting up a local config file

The toolbelt looks for a local config file called .argus_cli.yaml in your home directory.

Code Block
$ touch ~/.argus_cli.yaml
$ chmod 600 ~/.argus_cli.yaml

Config fields

Argus API

All argus_api options exist under the api field in the YAML-file.

Alternative API URL

To add your own custom argus-url, you have to use the api_url parameter.


Code Block
	api_url: <Your API URL>


To use some functions in the API you'll have to be authenticated.

This can for example be done by SMS confirmation, username and password or API keys. It's recommended to use an API key.

Code Block
	api_key: <Your API Key>
	method: apikey
Username and password
Code Block
	username: <Your username>
	password: <Your password>
	method: username

Argus CLI

Adding custom commands
