You are now logged in as [].

This creates a file that contains a valid OAuth2.0 id and refresh token, in the application configuration directory 1.

You can use strm auth print-access-token to get the access token, which will be refreshed is necessary. The billingId is not shown anymore since version 1.9.0 of the CLI when printing the access token, but can still be found with each reference to a stream (i.e. strm get stream my-stream --output json will show the billingId as a part of the stream reference). The billingId is required when using

the client drivers.
