2. Authentication

Anyscale authenticates API requests using CLI token, which can be found at You need to configure your token and generate your credential files in order to use Anyscale CLI.

Be sure to keep your auth token private and secure to prevent unwanted access to your Anyscale resources.

If the authentication is working, you shouldn't see any error related to permissions.
