       dotnet-nuget-add-source - Add a NuGet source.

              dotnet nuget add source <PACKAGE_SOURCE_PATH> [--name <SOURCE_NAME>] [--username <USER>]
                  [--password <PASSWORD>] [--store-password-in-clear-text]
                  [--valid-authentication-types <TYPES>] [--configfile <FILE>]

              dotnet nuget add source -h|--help

       The dotnet nuget add source command adds a new package source to your NuGet configuration files.

              [!WARNING]  When  adding  multiple  package sources, be careful not to introduce a dependency confusion vulnerability


         Path to the package source.

       • --configfile <FILE>

         The NuGet configuration file (nuget.config) to use.  If specified, only the settings from this file will be used.  If  not
         specified, the hierarchy of configuration files from the current directory will be used.  For more information, see Common
         NuGet Configurations.

       • -n|--name <SOURCE_NAME>

         Name of the source.

       • -p|--password <PASSWORD>

         Password to be used when connecting to an authenticated source.

       • --store-password-in-clear-text

         Enables storing portable package source credentials by disabling password encryption.

       • -u|--username <USER>

         Username to be used when connecting to an authenticated source.

       • --valid-authentication-types <TYPES>

         Comma-separated list of valid authentication types for this source.  Set this to basic if the server  advertises  NTLM  or
         Negotiate  and  your  credentials  must  be sent using the Basic mechanism, for instance when using a PAT with on-premises
         Azure DevOps Server.  Other valid values include negotiate, kerberos, ntlm, and digest, but these values are  unlikely  to
         be useful.

       • Add as a source:

                dotnet nuget add source -n

       • Add c:\packages as a local source:

                dotnet nuget add source c:\packages

       • Add a source that needs authentication:

                dotnet nuget add source https://someServer/myTeam -n myTeam -u myUsername -p myPassword --store-password-in-clear-text

       • Add a source that needs authentication (then go install credential provider):

                dotnet nuget add source -n myTeam

       • Package source sections in NuGet.config files

       • sources command (nuget.exe)
