  • Using the Command Line Interface (CLI): If you prefer the CLI via the Terminal application, use the following command to set your deployment token:

    sudo /Applications/ settings credentials set-deployment-token "YourDeploymentToken"

    Replace <your-deployment-token> with the actual token provided to you.

That's it! You've successfully installed the agent on your macOS system and configured it for use.
