METABASE-PROFILE(1)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  METABASE-PROFILE(1)

NAME
       metabase-profile	- create a metabase profile

VERSION
       version 0.025

SYNOPSIS
	 $ metabase-profile
	 Enter full name: John Doe
	 Enter email address: jdoe@example.com
	 Enter password/secret:	zqxjkh
	 Writing profile to 'metabase_id.json'

USAGE
       The metabase-profile program makes it easy to create a user profile for
       submitting facts	and reports to a Metabase server.

       Valid options include:

	     --email   ADDRESS	 user email address eg "jd@example.com"
	     --name    FULLNAME	 full user name, eg "John Doe"
	 -o, --output  FILENAME	 output	filename
	     --secret  PASSWORD	 password for authentication
	 -h, --help		 print man page

       If no output file name is given,	the default name 'metabase_id.json'
       will be used.  If the output filename (or default) exists, the program
       will abort rather than overwrite	the file.  The output file will	be in
       JSON and	contain	the user profile and the user's	shared secret.

       Typically, when a Metabase server first receives	a report from a	new
       user profile, the shared	secret is recorded and will be used to
       authenticate subsequent submissions.  The output	should not be shared
       publicly	or made	group or world readable.

       Use the resulting file according	to the instructions of your Metabase
       client program. You may wish to copy it across computers	if you would
       like to be identified consistently when submitting reports from
       different locations.
