path
Default:

Notes

Note

  • Use full-length key ID (40 characters).

  • Keys will be verified when using data, file, or url unless verify is overridden.

  • Keys will be locally signed after being imported into the keyring.

  • If the key ID exists in the keyring, the key will not be added unless force_update is specified.
