flag explicit

Mode: Operational Mode


The explicit flag indicates that the default value is explicitly used when the user does not specify a value for the argument. Hence, a default value should be defined for the argument.


            command newbie {
                help "Show newbie";

                argument group {
                    flag explicit nokeyword;
                    help "Business Unit";
                    choice apg {
                        help "Newbie works for APG";
                    choice ipg {
                        help "Newbie works for IPG";
                    choice spg {
                        help "Newbie works for SPG";
                    default ipg;


If the CLI user does not specify the group, ipg is used.
