Sling CLI Setup

The following credentials keys are accepted:

  • host (required) -> The hostname / ip of the machine

  • user (required) -> The username to access the machine

  • port (optional. Default is 22)

# Or use url
$ sling conns set MY_SFTP url=sftp://myuser:mypass@host.ip:22 private_key=<private_key>

In JSON/YAML format:

export MY_SFTP='{type: sftp, url: "sftp://myuser:mypass@host.ip:22", private_key: <private_key>}'
