If I know a Vault CLI command, how do I get its cURL Command?

If you have a command like vault auth enable oidc, how do you know its corresponding API call? Like this:

vault auth disable -output-curl-string oidc

Here's an example:

$ vault auth enable oidc
Success! Enabled oidc auth method at: oidc/

$ vault auth disable oidc
Success! Disabled the auth method (if it existed) at: oidc/

$ vault auth enable -output-curl-string oidc
curl -X POST -H "X-Vault-Request: true" -H "X-Vault-Token: $(vault print token)"
 -d '{"type":"oidc","description":"","config":{"options":null,"default_lease_ttl
":"0s","max_lease_ttl":"0s","force_no_cache":false},"local":false,"seal_wrap":fa
lse,"external_entropy_access":false,"options":null}' http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sy
s/auth/oidc

$ vault auth disable -output-curl-string oidc
curl -X DELETE -H "X-Vault-Request: true" -H "X-Vault-Token: $(vault print token
)" http://127.0.0.1:8200/v1/sys/auth/oidc
