ax users add-key

Add a key to a locally running Actyx node
ax users add-key [FLAGS] [OPTIONS] <PATH>

-h, --help Prints help information
-j, --json Format output as JSON
-V, --version Prints version information
-v Verbosity level. Add more v for higher verbosity (-v, -vv, -vvv, etc.)

-i, --identity <FILE> File from which the identity (private key) for authentication is read

<PATH> Path to the `actyx-data` folder you wish to modify

This command uses local file system access to the Actyx data folder to modify the node database and insert the given key into the authorized keys list. For this operation to succeed, the Actyx node must not be running and you must have write access to the database files.

If you try to add your key even though it is already present, you’ll see such an error:

Adding a key again
