Support is available for optionally providing a custom CVE account username and password, as well as a custom URL for the CVE API server (as would be the case for testing purposes).

use Joomla\Cve\CveService;
use Joomla\Registry\Registry;

$options = new Registry;
$options->set('', 'cve_org');
$options->set('api.username', 'cve_username');
$options->set('api.key', 'cve_key');
$options->set('api.url', 'http://localhost:3000');

$cve = new CveService($options);
