`multipass set` command

See also: get

The multipass set command takes an argument in the form <key>=<value> to configure a single setting. The “key” part is a dot-separated path identifying the setting in a hierarchical settings tree. The “value” part is what it should be set to:

$ multipass set client.gui.autostart=false

To find what the configured value is at any moment, see get.
You can read more about settings in the reference.
