As a prerequisite for the IBM Cloud Container Service plug-in, install the IBM Cloud command-line interface. Once installed, you can access IBM Cloud from your command-line with the prefix bx. Log in to the IBM Cloud CLI: ibmcloud login. Enter your IBM Cloud credentials when prompted. Note: If you have a federated ID, use ibmcloud login –sso to log in to the IBM Cloud CLI. Enter your user name, and use the provided URL in your CLI output to retrieve your one-time passcode. You know you have a federated ID when the login fails without the –sso and succeeds with the –sso option.
