Added a warning prompt if the user tries to use an API cert instead of a CLI cert

Authored by jcox on Aug 25 2016, 3:02 PM.



Fixes T9692. Instead of disallowing API tokens entirely, we're going to just warn the user that they might not want to do that. After that, they can proceed if they want to.

Test Plan

Run arc install-certificate.
Manually go to Settings → Conduit API Tokens in the web UI.
Generate an API token explicitly, which should have the form api-**.
Paste that into the prompt on the CLI.
It will give you a warning prompt then ask if you'd like to proceed anyway (defaults to No).

One inline about translations. This is moot today since there's no way to set arc to a different language, but will likely become relevant soon (T5267).


Use pht() here, to make these messages ("Install this..."), ("Not installing...") translatable.

See here for more details about error/exception translations, or the rest of this document for discussion of pht():
