From within a vscode SFDX project, I'd like to retrieve and eventually manage / set custom settings from within my project.

Command that I'm using for this is a standard CLI call of source:retrieve - nothing fancy.


Custom Settings

Expected solution is something like: sfdx force:source:retrieve -m CustomSettings (Obviously, this does not work)

  • Did you also specify a namespace prefix? Like tcsfl__AdminSettings?

Custom Settings are actually implemented as Custom Objects:

sfdx force:source:retrieve -m CustomObject:AdminSetting__c

Make sure you use the API name, including __c.
