On the Team version, the rit login command allows to create a session to store datas that can be reused in different formulas.

➜ rit login

Enter your password: **************
Organization: org
Login successfully!

This command creates a session using Keycloak after the user has informed his organization with his datas (email & password). In this session, the user can, for example, define his credentials for various tools (github, aws, etc ...).

In this case, the credentials are stored in the Vault. This allows that if the user logs in to Ritchie with his data, on someone else's machine, he will be able to fetch these credentials from the Vault, despite having configured them on his local machine.

The command rit logout allows the user to end the current session.
