For the time being, you can achieve this behavior only by manually modifying the AppBuilder CLI. To do so, please follow these steps:
- Open the folder where the AppBuilder CLI is installed. (You can get it by running the "where appbuilder" command in the Command Prompt. Just make sure that you select only the path to npm\ and exclude the executable files after that.)
- Once in the npm\ folder, you should open the folders in that order: node_modules > appbuilder > lib > services.
- In the services folder, locate and open appmanager-service.js.
- Navigate to row 99 - the openAppManagerStore method and comment out the 102 row - this.$opener.open(tamUrl);.
Having said that, I have notified the responsible developers and they will implement a functionality that would make it possible to set a flag while using those commands. For example, the new command will look like this: appbuilder appmanager upload <platform> --skipUi.
This will become available with our next major release, which is planned for the end of February.
I hope this helps. Please, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
