       manage-credentials  -  a  tool to create (and manage) credentials which
       are used to access launchpad via the API.


       manage-credentials create -c  <consumer>  [--email  <email>  --password
       <password>] [--service <staging|edge>]
       manage-credentials -h


       manage-credentials  is  a tool to create (and manage) credentials which
       are used to access Launchpad via the API.

       Currently this tool can be used to create a token with or without using
       the  web  UI. In the future, once related methods are available through
       the API, this tool can also be used to manage tokens in  launchpad  and
       on the users local machine.


       Listed below are the command line options for requestsync:

       -h     Display a help message and exit.

       -c --consumer

       -e --email <email>
              Your email address as registered on Launchpad.

       -p --password <password>
              Your Launchpad password.

       -s --service <edge|staging>
              If  we should use the edge or staging root of the Launchpad API.

              Where to store the cache.

       -o     Which file we should save the credentials to. By default manage-
              credentials    writes    the    credentials    tokens   to   the
              ~/.cache/lp_credentials/ directory.

       -l --level <number>
              A number representing the access-level you wish to give  to  the
              new  Launchpad  token. 0 is unauthorized, 1 is read public data,
              2; write public data, 3; read private data and 4; write  private


       There  are  currently  two  ways  of  using  manage-credentials  to get
       Launchpad tokens.

       1) manage-credentials create -c CONSUMER --level 2

       This way shall open your webbrowser with a Launchpad login page.

       2) manage-credentials create  -c  CONSUMER  --level  2  --password  BOO

       This is a hack, but it works and does not require a webbrowser .

       If you intend to use manage-credentials for Ubuntu development (such as
              the  ubuntu-dev-tools  package).  Please  by  sure  to  run  the

       manage-credentials create -c ubuntu-dev-tools -l 2
