Display, Set, and Remove Image Properties

See “IMAGE PROPERTIES” in pkg(1) Man Page for descriptions of image properties.

Example 4-2 Displaying the Values of Image Properties

Use the pkg property command to view the properties of an image.

$ pkg property
PROPERTY                       VALUE
ca-path                        /etc/openssl/certs
flush-content-cache-on-success False
mirror-discovery               False
preferred-publisher            solaris
publisher-search-order         ['solaris']
send-uuid                      True
signature-policy               ignore
signature-required-names       []
trust-anchor-directory         etc/certs/CA

Most of these properties are managed with the set-property, unset-property, add-property-value, and remove-property-value subcommands of the pkg command. The preferred-publisher and publisher-search-order properties are set with the pkg set-publisher command. See Example 3-26 and Example 3-29.

Example 4-3 Setting the Value of an Image Property

Use the pkg set-property command to set the value of an image property or add and set a property.

This example sets the value of the mirror-discovery property.

# pkg set-property mirror-discovery True
$ pkg property -H mirror-discovery
mirror-discovery True

Example 4-4 Resetting the Value of an Image Property

Use the pkg unset-property command to reset the values of the specified properties to their default values.

This example unsets the mirror-discovery property.

# pkg unset-property mirror-discovery
$ pkg property -H mirror-discovery
mirror-discovery False
