I'm working on dockerized Sitecore 10.3 solution with JSS and SXA but when I run the below command to serialize my items from Sitecore I get the error invalid_grant.


dotnet sitecore ser pull

Error enter image description here

This was working nicely and stopped working suddenly.

    The reason it stopped working is because when you initially up your containers with the up PowerShell script, it logs in. That login times out after a while, so you will need to log the CLI in again as in your answer.

You just need to login into your Sitecore instance by running the following command from your project root folder.

dotnet sitecore login --authority "https://your.id.host" --cm "https://your.cm.host" --allow-write true

Flags explanation

--auth, --authority Identity authority for the environment, i.e. identity server or AAD tenant URL

--cm Sitecore content management hostname to connect to

--allow-write Enables writing data to the environment
