CLI command to login: Is there a way to add the -auth parameter or does login not have that feature?

Tried to run

./splunk login -auth admin:password

Cannot seem to execute a one liner command to authenticate local user session.

Is there a way to add the -auth parameter or does login not have that feature?

I don't think you could send user and pass for the login command. As alternative you could use a search to login and create the session:

./splunk search 'index=_internal | fields _time | head 1 ' -auth 'admin:password'

After that you have your session and don't have to send user/pass anymore.
