This is a list of system flags that can be used to request specific NPM and YARN behaviours. Please refer to the parent section to learn how to specify them to the client.
During the scan of a NodeJS project, the client will usually look in all folders of the projects in order to detect any manifest file. if you want to avoid the client to look into specific subfolder you can use this flag. By default, the client won't look into folders named "lib", "examples", "samples" and of course "node_modules".
When false, directs the client to look only into the root folder and not in any subfolder for manifest files. By default the scanner will look also in subfolders.
