Switching Fugue Users with the User Set Command

After creating any required users and policies for Fugue, you have the ability to specify a Fugue user and execute commands as that Fugue user. To switch between Fugue users you can execute the fugue user set command.

To confirm the list of users before selecting a target user, it may be helpful to view a list of users.

Note: In order to issue the fugue user set command the target user must enabled.

$ fugue policy list-users

[ HELP ] To enable a user, run "fugue policy generate-secret <user_id>".

To set a specified Fugue user, issue fugue =set user command specifying both the <user_id> and the <user_secret>. The user set command modifies the contents of your fugue.yaml file and assumes the use of the specified user credentials until you issue the fugue user set command to switch to another user.

The Fugue CLI will warn you that you’re going to replace the current user, ask you to confirm, verify the updates and provide a completion message.


Do not lose your root credentials. They cannot be replaced with the policy generate-secret command. If you have lost your root credentials, see Troubleshooting or contact
