Administration Command Line Interface
The CLI is a program that allows a user to enter keywords as instructions to a computer or device to perform specific tasks. (The MS-DOS® command prompt is an example of a CLI.) Results are typically output as simple text to the user’s terminal. More specifically, the CLI provides the means for you to enter commands through a text-based interface. The primary use of the CLI is for scripting. The CLI is also useful for environments where no GUI is available.
In addition to the functionality provided through the GUI for the Windchill RV&S administration client, you can also perform certain tasks through the CLI.
For a complete description of the commands and their options, see the CLI man pages.
