Getting Started


  • node version >= 12.0.0


Install via npm or yarn:

npm install -g @lifeomic/cli

yarn global add @lifeomic/cli

or you can download and install the binary from the latest release.


Run lo setup to configure the default environment and account you wish to use. You can later override the default account using the -a option for commands.


Use lo auth to obtain access credentials when using username / password authentication. A browser will be opened and you can enter your credentials in the LifeOmic login view.

You can also use the client credentials grant flow for obtaining access tokens. To do this, create a custom authentication client here and be sure to select the Client credentials flow under the Allowed OAuth Flows section. Run lo setup again and choose Y to use a custom authentication client and enter the client ID and secret and then choose Y again to use client credentials for authentication. Note that for this option, you do not need to run lo auth as username and password credentials are not used for this credentials grant.

You can also provide an API key or access and refresh tokens in the PHC_ACCESS_TOKEN and PHC_REFRESH_TOKEN environment variables. With these set, you can bypass using lo auth.

API Keys

To use an API key for authentication, follow the Set Up API Keys instructions to create the key. You can also use the command lo api-keys-create. Be sure to capture the value of the API key when it is created as you will not be able to retrieve the value after the first attempt. Run lo setup and choose 'Y' to use an API key and provide the API key value.


If you wish to use SSO, then you need to create a custom authentication client here and configure your SAML 2.0 identity provider. For the callback URL on the authentication client, be sure to add http://localhost:8787. Then run lo setup again and choose 'Y' to use a custom authentication client and provide the client ID and secret (if a private client was created). When running lo auth again, a browser should open and be redirected to the identity provider being used for SSO.


lo <command> [options]

lo offers many commands and those can be displayed by using the -h / --help command line option. For example:

❯ lo --help

  Usage: lo <command> [options]


    -V, --version  output the version number
    -h, --help     output usage information


    accounts [options]                 List accounts
    accounts-get [options] <account>   Fetch an account

Get help for a specific command:

❯ lo <command> --help

❯ lo tasks --help

  Usage: tasks [options] <datasetId>

  List tasks


    -a, --account <account>            Override the default LifeOmic account
    --json                             Print output as JSON
    --prefix <prefix>                  Filter tasks where the name begins with a prefix
    --state <state>                    Filter tasks by state
    --view <view>                      Specify MINIMAL to just get task state
    --page-size <pageSize>             Number of items to return (default: 25)
    --next-page-token <nextPageToken>  Next page token
    -h, --help                         output usage information
