The metabase-profile program makes it easy to create a user profile for
submitting facts and reports to a Metabase server.
Valid options include:
--email ADDRESS user email address eg "firstname.lastname@example.org"
--name FULLNAME full user name, eg "John Doe"
-o, --output FILENAME output filename
--secret PASSWORD password for authentication
-h, --help print man page
If no output file name is given, the default name metabase_id.json will be
used. If the output filename (or default) exists, the program will abort
rather than overwrite the file. The output file will be in JSON and contain
the user profile and the users shared secret.
Typically, when a Metabase server first receives a report from a new user
profile, the shared secret is recorded and will be used to authenticate
subsequent submissions. The output should not be shared publicly or
made group or world readable.
Use the resulting file according to the instructions of your Metabase
client program. You may wish to copy it across computers if you would like
to be identified consistently when submitting reports from different
