TIL: Tracing IBM Cloud CLI

For no particular reason, I've "discovered" how to trace the IBM Cloud Command Line Interface (CLI) tool, which is useful.

I'm mainly running on macOS and Linux and, in both cases, I can trace the CLI by setting the variable IBMCLOUD_TRACE to true: -

export IBMCLOUD_TRACE=true

and now I see the HTTP request and response headers: -
