When you issue a command that is missing a required option value for a property (for example, host or password) the CLI prompts you to enter the option value. In the V1-LTS version of Zowe CLI, the value that was specified was not stored for future commands to use. As a result, you either responded to a prompt on every command issued or issued a profile update command to store the missing value.
autoStore property in the
zowe.config.json file lets you store the option values for properties automatically. When you specify the
autoStore property in
true, the value that you enter when prompted is stored for future commands to use. The values for secure fields are stored securely in the credential vault, and the other values are written to
zowe.config.json on disk.
The default value of the
autoStore property is true. However, if this behavior is undesirable (you do not want to store properties automatically), set the value of
autoStore to false. A value of false uses the V1-LTS behavior, which prompts for missing values on all commands that you issue.
