Bridgecrew CLI

In this tutorial, we’re also going to use Bridgecrew CLI. The CLI works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. You can install it with pip:

pip3 install bridgecrew

If installing globally on your system (not in a python venv or pipenv) you may need to have permissions to write the libraries to the necessary locations, ie:

sudo pip3 install bridgecrew

If you run into problems, try the alternate install instructions.

Bridgecrew API token

Throughout the tutorial, you’ll need to use the Bridgecrew API token. You can get an API key by going to Integrations -> API Tokens -> Add Token. Give it a name like workshop and save it for the rest of the workshop.
