When I hit the Tab key after typing gs://, my console is not auto-completing with bucket name. why it’s not working?
You’re not alone, as this seems to be an issue with
gsutil rather than the environment where you run it. When I firstly used
gsutil the auto-completion still worked. But after a few updates of the
gcloud commands suite, the auto-completion of
gsutil went away, both on Cloud Shell or on a computer.
I have colleagues doing the course with me, and it appears to be browser-related. I’m on Firefox 80.0.1 and it doesn’t work, whereas a colleague is on Chrome and it is working. One solution other people have used is to download the SDK, but that takes some setup. For the tutorial, I’m just keeping my bucket names short.
I wish it was that easy for me.. I have tried with Firefox, Chrome, Edge and IE and experienced the same failure each time. I gave up and provided feedback. Luckily I can type pretty fast and accurately.
Same on OSX chrome. No tab. Both for buckets and local cloud shell files.
