Stuck on an issue?

dotnet commands that do an implicit restore don't support --interactive flag

See original GitHub issue

Steps to reproduce

Nathans-MBP:test nathan$ dotnet build --interactive
Microsoft (R) Build Engine version 15.8.166+gd4e8d81a88 for .NET Core
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
MSBUILD : error MSB1001: Unknown switch.
Switch: --interactive

Expected behavior

I should be able to pass --interactive to build and have it passed to the implicit restore. This makes scenarios with authenticated feeds annoying as I have to explicitly call restore the first time I build.

Actual behavior

Error (see above). A good workaround is adding the following in a Directory.Build.props

Current state is --interactive is available for build, restore, publish, run, tool install, and workload install. Going to close this as fixed in cleaning up old issues. CC @nkolev92

This confused me again today:

dotnet build C:\Program Files\dotnet\sdk\2.1.700\NuGet.targets(121,5): warning : The plugin credential provider could not acquire credentials. Authentication may require manual action. Consider re-running the command with --interactive for dotnet, /p:NuGetInteractive=“true” for MSBuild or removing the -NonInteractive switch for NuGet […csproj]

dotnet build --interactive Microsoft ® Build Engine version 16.1.76+g14b0a930a7 for .NET Core Copyright © Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. MSBUILD : error MSB1001: Unknown switch. Switch: --interactive

But maybe my SDKs are just outdated or mismatch somewhere…
