Dotnet Tool Install should support --interactive

See original GitHub issue

Steps to reproduce

Using a private feed, run dotnet tool install -g <ToolName hosted in private feed> --interactive

Expected behavior

dotnet tool install passes the interactive flag to dotnet restore during the installation to support authentication

Actual behavior

dotnet tool fails with unknown command --interactive

Honestly feel the entire auth workflow needs some attention when dealing with Azure DevOps feeds. Currently the only working flow to get this to install is this:

  1. dotnet nuget locals -c all
  2. dotnet restore --interactive (this gives me a URL & code to open in a browser to complete auth) ??
  3. dotnet tool install -g <%toolname%>

If I don’t clear all nuget cache first, the tool install command doesn’t seem to look outside the cache folders and simply fails with a package not found error.

But why was this issue closed? dotnet tool install -g <toolname> --interactive still doesn’t work without -v m. How would a user know to add that?

What in the world? That is not intuitive at all
