oci-cli authentication - print the URL rather than opening the browser?

I'm working in numerous shell tabs, browser tab containers and with a series of web console and API users - all simultaneously. When trying to authenticate a shell session to a particular user, I'm finding the oci-cli command very frustrating because it insists on opening a browser window from the command line. This invariable opens my default browser, in the default tab container which is logged on a different user than the one I'd like to log on with in the CLI.

This whole problem would be solved neatly if I could just get the oci-cli to tell me the URL it wants to open, rather than attempting to open it automatically. Is there a way to do this? I've looked in help pages and tried a few possible command line options, but nothing works.


Howdy, Stranger!
