Where are secrets stored?

After uplink setup, it appears my 1) API key and 2) secret are stored somewhere. Where is that somewhere?

On Linux, I find ~/.local/share/storj/uplink/config.yaml but nothing in it looks like it … except maybe scope? If so, how does this very long value relate to what I entered?

I’m asking because I like to know which files I need to protect / backup / …

Hello @j12t,
Welcome to the forum!

The scope is what you are looking for. It contains the URL to satellite, the API key and encryption key.
Now we call it access string
You can decrypt it:

./uplink access inspect <here your access string> 

Also, you can make an own access string for the bucket

./uplink share --readonly sj://test

Will produce the access string for read only access to the sj://test bucket

You can then import it in the other uplink

./uplink import <access string>
