How to list credentials

See also:

A list of the available credentials can be obtained by running the credentials command:

juju credentials

Sample output:

Controller Credentials:
Cloud           Credentials
lxd             localhost

Client Credentials:
Cloud   Credentials
aws     bob*, carol
google  wayne

In the above output, asterisks denote the default credential for a cloud. Here, the credential named bob is the default for cloud aws and no default has been specified for the lxd and google clouds. For information on how to manage default credentials for a cloud see Setting default client credential

By default, the command outputs credentials in to two sets:

  • Credentials that are available to the currently active controller.
  • Credentials that are available to the local Juju client.

To display only the credentials available to the local Juju client, specify the --client flag when invoking the credentials command e.g. juju credentials --client. Likewise, to limit the displayed credentials to the ones stored in a particular controller you can instead specify the --controller flag followed by the controller’s name when invoking the command e.g. juju credentials --controller my-controller.

The output from the credentials command can also be changed to several different types to match the desired use case. Supported output types are tabular, json and yaml with the default being tabular.

Example of changing the output type:

juju credentials --format yaml

By default the secrets contained within a credential are not shown by default for security. To have the secrets contained within a credential displayed use the --show-secrets argument.

Example of showing credential secrets

juju credentials --client --show-secrets
# 2nd example with yaml output
juju credentials --format yaml --show-secrets

Sample output:

      auth-type: access-key
      access-key: AKIAXZUYGB6UED2GNC5A
      secret-key: StB2bmL1+tX+VX7neVgy/3JosJAwOcBIO53nyCVp
