This section explains how to configure Zowe CLI using environment variables.
By default, Zowe CLI configuration is stored on your computer in the
C:\Users\user01\.zowe directory. The directory includes log files, profile information, and installed CLI plug-ins. When troubleshooting, refer to the logs in the
You can set the location on your computer where Zowe CLI creates the .zowe directory, which contains log files, profiles, and plug-ins for the product:
|Zowe CLI home directory location||Any valid path on your computer||Your computer default home directory|
You can set the log level to adjust the level of detail that is written to log files:
Important! Setting the log level to TRACE or ALL might result in "sensitive" data being logged. For example, command line arguments will be logged when TRACE is set.
|Zowe CLI logging level||Log4JS log levels (OFF, TRACE, DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL)||WARN|
|Imperative CLI Framework logging level||Log4JS log levels (OFF, TRACE, DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL)||WARN|
By default, the CLI daemon mode binary creates or reuses a file in the user's home directory each time a Zowe CLI command runs. In some cases, this behavior might be undesirable. For example, the home directory resides on a network drive and has poor file performance. To change the location that the daemon uses, set the environment variables that are described in the following table:
|All||Lets you override the complete path to the directory that will hold daemon files related to this user. The directory can contain the following files:||Any valid path on your computer|
|Windows (only)||Lets you override the last two segments of the name of the communication pipe between the daemon executable (.exe) and the daemon.||Any valid path on your computer|
