PCF-Allow solution name to set during creation of solution project through power apps CLI

During PCF solution project creation using Powerapps CLI, currently we have two options available in init command which are solution publisher name and prefix. The solution name by default taken folder name where the command prompt is being run. It would be better if you allow user to set the solution unique name in pac solution —init command like — solutionName instead of taking the name from the folder.

Re: PCF-Allow solution name to set during creation of solution project through power apps CLI

Great points, and I agree that we need to enhance this.

 

Internally, we've been debating adding a --display-name argument to solution init. We would still use the directory name as the unique name but you could optionally provide a richer display name via an argument.

 

What are your thoughts on this change?

 

Thanks.

Re: PCF-Allow solution name to set during creation of solution project through power apps CLI

While creating a solution for a component, we execute the following command in the solution folder.

pac solution init --publisherName <enter your publisher name> --customizationPrefix <enter your publisher name>

After it ran, the solution got created with name as solution folder name. It's just my suggesstion that if we have an option to set the solution name in the same command, it is more meaningful than considering folder name as solution name.

Like this

pac solution init --publisherName <enter your publisher name> --customizationPrefix <enter your publisher name> --solutionName <enter your solution name>
