For longer code or configuration bits, please enclose your snippet in a summary block like this:

Summary of your code snippet or config here
Your code goes inside the triple backticks

To resolve the 401 Unauthorized error, follow these steps:

  1. Run the command sensuctl configure in your terminal or command prompt.
  2. Input your credentials to authenticate with the environment.

By running sensuctl configure and providing your credentials, you authenticate yourself to the environment, which should resolve the 401 Unauthorised error you’re encountering.
