rpk cloud auth

Manage rpk cloud authentications (auths).

An rpk cloud authentication allows you to talk to Redpanda Cloud. Most likely, you will only ever need to use a single SSO based login and you will not need this command space. Multiple authentications can be useful if you have multiple Redpanda Cloud accounts for different organizations and you want to swap between them, or if you use both SSO and client credentials. Redpanda Data recommends using only a single SSO based login.
