I created a collection of wallets for a private EOS testnet and I can generate passwords for the wallets. For the private key, there seems to be just one given in the docs:


How can we generate a series of private keys for all the different wallets? When I used

cleos wallet create_key

it just shows a new public key but I cannot see the private key eg

Created new private key with a public key of: "EOS6Pzm1Gs1eH3AxEQvZZdX2a71zASiwJdUn93775a92cbqcJR7ZJ"

Command: cleos create key --to-console

Link to command: https://developers.eos.io/eosio-cleos/v1.5.0/reference#cleos-create-key

From there you would do: cleos wallet import [OPTIONS]

  -n,--name TEXT              The name of the wallet to import key into
  --private-key TEXT          Private key in WIF format to import
