Working with the Nexmo CLI

Nexmo Application setup

Since you can create multiple Nexmo applications, the commands you run refer to the application that was set up. For example, when you create a user, you must make sure to create it on the application you intended.

cat .nexmo-app

For example:

nexmo app:setup abababa-ababa-123123-123123-abababa private.key
