Need format of .qradar_appfw.auth file

  • 1.  Need format of .qradar_appfw.auth file

    According to Application Testing with the SDK - QRadar App Development I should be prompted for my QRadar console username and password when running the qradar_app_creator run command and they should be placed in ~/.qradar_appfw.auth but that is not occurring and I am unable to find any examples of the format of this file.  I am prompted for the QRadar console IP address and that populates ~/.qradar_appfw.console in the format of {"console": "X.X.X.X"} where X.X.X.X is the IP Address.

    Any help on this is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    appfw.auth and appfw.console
    This is the screen-shot from my dev lab...Hope it helps.

    .qradar_appfw.auth--->
    {"password": "QRadar@123", "user": "admin"}

    .qradar_appfw.console--->
    {"console": "192.168.1.180"}

    @Jabez Daniel Thank you very very much.  I was using `username` instead of `user`.  I hope this post and your reply can help others in same situation.  Cheers. ​
