rpk profile set-globals

Set rpk globals fields.

This command takes a list of key=value pairs to write to the global config section of rpk.yaml. The globals section contains a set of settings that apply to all profiles and changes the way that rpk acts. For a list of global flags and what they mean, check rpk -X help and look for any key that begins with "globals".

This command supports autocompletion of valid keys. You can also use the format set key value if you intend to only set one key.
