steampipe login

Log in to Steampipe Cloud.

The Steampipe CLI can interact with Steampipe Cloud to run queries, benchmarks, and dashboards against a remote cloud database, and to save and share snapshots. These capabilities require authenticating to Steampipe Cloud. The steampipe login command launches an interactive process for logging in and obtaining a temporary (30 day) token. The token is written to ~/.steampipe/internal/{cloud host}.sptt.
