This section helps you to:
- Set up your credentials and profiles.
- Pass parameters to the OLP CLI.
- Use the OLP CLI output format options.
- Configure an HTTP proxy server.
You need to obtain and properly configure your credentials so that the OLP CLI can connect to the HERE platform.
Your Credentials are used for authentication. The HERE platform uses the concept of apps and access keys to control the access to resources.
The credentials consist of the
here.access.key.secret contained in a
credentials.properties file. You can download this file from the platform portal when creating an access key for an app (see the procedure below in the Credentials Setup. The following snippet illustrates an example of a
here.user.id = HERE-01966c94-aaf1-4ae2-a1y6-6516b3f9b6c1 here.client.id = mzLcb1rL8nskvDQpCAAO here.access.key.id = BELUTk45QdaYGgZ9A_IMTA here.access.key.secret = 108lI7w9m8G_6sIw9kng-PXGoeHQQ-cv6xByNOuMcRYixZZp... here.token.endpoint.url = https://account.api.here.com/oauth2/token
The HERE platform uses OAuth2 scopes as a mechanism to control access to certain resources. Each of the OLP CLI commands that support scope resolves the scope to use in the request in the following priority order:
--scope <project HRN>: An optional parameter that specifies the scope to use in the request.
here.token.scope: An optional attribute to include in the credentials used for the request.
Application default scope: If the client making the request has a default scope configured and neither of the above two parameters are present, the client's default scope will be used in the request.
If a scope is not found in either of the above three locations, the request will not use any scope.
Credentials profiles allow you to define multiple profiles to use different credentials for different projects. You can use credentials profiles to manage and organize multiple app credentials from multiple
Profiles and the related credentials are stored in the
.here/olpcli.ini file in your home directory. You can manage profiles with the credentials commands. The
.here/olpcli.ini file is created after you add your first profile with the
olp credentials import command, as described in the Setup section below.
Follow the procedure below to configure your credentials:
- In the platform portal, in the upper-right corner, click your account icon and select Apps & keys.
- Click the Register new app button and specify the requested information.
- In the Credentials tab, go to the OAuth 2.0 tab and click Create credentials.
In the dialog box that opens, click Download to download the
Once you click Close, you can no longer access your access key ID and access key secret.
To create a default profile and associate your credentials with it, run the following command:
olp credentials import default credentials.properties
To verify that your credentials have been correctly configured, execute the command below in the directory that contains the OLP CLI JAR file:
olp api token get
An output similar to the one below is generated if your credentials have been configured properly:

You can now use your credentials to connect to the HERE platform resources through the OLP CLI.
Warning: Storing Your Credentials
Keep your credentials private. Don't share them between workstations or users. Don't commit them to public repositories such as GitHub.
For more information on credentials configuration options, see Get Your Credentials.
The OLP CLI allows you to pass your credentials via optional parameters of the CLI commands or by setting environment variables. The OLP CLI resolves credentials in the following order:
--credentials <path to credentials file>: An optional parameter that you append to the end of an applicable CLI command. This parameter specifies the path to the
credentials.propertiesfile to use with the command.
For example, execute the command below:
olp catalog layer show hrn:here::data:::test-catalog test-layer --credentials credentials.properties
This shows the properties of the
test-layerlayer if your credentials allow you to access the
OLP_CREDENTIALS: An environment variable that defines the path to the
credentials.propertiesfile used for all CLI commands by default.
--profile <profile name>: An optional parameter that you append to the end of an applicable CLI command. This parameter specifies the name of the profile to use with the command.
For example, the following command shows a list of catalogs accessible to the
olp-userprofile, including all the public HERE platform catalogs:
olp catalog list --profile olp-user
OLP_PROFILE: An environment variable that defines the name of the profile to use for all CLI commands by default.
defaultprofile: A profile that you create by running the command below:
olp credentials import default credentials.properties
credentials.propertiesdefault location: A path to the
.herefolder in your home directory where your credentials file is stored by default.
Some OLP CLI commands require that you specify a
group ID. Your administrator must set up the relevant group IDs for your account and assign your application to the group. If your app is not assigned to a group, then the command produces an error. For more information on group IDs, see the Teams and Permissions User Guide.
The OLP CLI supports a set of characters that you can use to pass command parameters:
Space and equal (
By default, command parameters are separated with spaces, but you can also use the equal (
=) separator, as in the examples below:
olp catalog list --profile <your_profile_name>
olp catalog list --profile=<your_profile_name>
If you are using the tilde-prefix (
~) to denote a user's home directory in Linux environments, you must use a space as tilde cannot be combined with the
olp catalog layer stream put hrn:here:data:::catalog1 stream-layer1 --input ~/path/to/dir
|) and dash (
The pipe (
|) character lets you take the output of one command and send it as input to another command. The dash (
-) character allows capturing that output and passing it to a certain parameter of the other command.
In the example below, the
catalog showcommand returns the configuration of the
hrn:here:data:::catalog-1catalog in JSON format. The
catalog updatecommand takes the
--config -) to update the configuration of the
hrn:here:data:::catalog-2catalog, including catalog summary, name, description, and layer configuration:
olp catalog show hrn:here:data:::catalog-1 --json | olp catalog update hrn:here:data:::catalog-2 --config -
The OLP CLI's default output is optimized for human readability. All commands report a
0 exit code when a command succeeds, and a non-zero exit code when the command fails.
All commands provide a
--quiet flag that allows reducing the output to essential values only with no additional information.
Commands that display output in the console provide a
--json flag. Depending on the command, this flag shows more additional information in the output in the JSON format. You can also parse JSON output with a script.
Alternatively, you can set the
OLP_OUTPUT environment variable to
quiet to choose the output format. However, the flags have a higher priority than the environment variable.
To disable a previously set output format, set
verbose, which is its default value.
You have two options for setting up a proxy in the OLP CLI configuration:
By exporting an environment variable to set the proxy to
proxy.hostname.comand the port to
Use the same syntax for the
You can also provide your proxy credentials using the following command:LinuxWindows
The OLP CLI resolves proxy settings in the following order:
- OLP CLI proxy settings defined in the
.here/olpcli.inifile in your home directory
- Java proxy settings
