Back in JQ, retrieving multiple fields

I'm using the IBM Cloud CLI tool ( aka ic ) to retrieve a list of API keys from my account.

This can be retrieved as a JSON document, and then passed through jq as per the following: -

ic iam api-keys --output JSON | jq

However, I really only wanted to retrieve two fields - .id and .description

And, of course, jq can do that ...

ic iam api-keys --output JSON | jq ".[] | .id, .description"

Now I'm not going to paste the output here because ... security.

However, I continue to ❤️ jq
