Description Rich Jerrido 2014-10-19 11:50:45 UTC
Description of problem:
This RFE requests the ability to configure hammer with either

* a token for login that is separate from the username/pass OR
* a session based credential cache so that the user can be prompted for login once at the beginning of their CLI session. 

The goal is to keep the user from placing an administrative username/password within hammer's configuration file, in cleartext.

This would also allow persistent authentication for the REST API?

# hammer auth logout
> Logged out.

So the sessionized(tokenized) authentication is working as expected. Changing the state of bug to verified.

Note: This tokenized auth doesnt works with curl as mentioned in comment 9.
