si exit
exits the current Windchill RV&S Client session
si exit [--[no]abort] [--[no|confirm]shutdown] [(-?|--usage)] [(-F file|--selectionFile=file)] [(-N|--no)] [(-Y|--yes)] [--[no]batch] [--cwd=directory] [--forceConfirm=[yes|no]] [(-g|--gui)] [--quiet] [--settingsUI=[gui|default]] [--status=[none|gui|default]]
si exit exits the current Windchill RV&S Client session. When you run any Windchill RV&S command from the CLI, or when you open the Windchill RV&S Client GUI, you start a client session. Only one client session is running at a time, regardless of how many GUI windows you have open or how many CLIs you are using. To close the GUI you use the appropriate menu commands, and to close the CLI you use the si exit command. In both cases you may have the further option of shutting down the Windchill RV&S client altogether, based on your preferences (see si setprefs); if you do not, the client is still running and available for additional interaction. If you do shut down the client completely, then running any Windchill RV&S command from the CLI or opening the Windchill RV&S Client GUI starts a new client session.
This command takes the universal options available to all si commands, as well as some general options. See the options reference page for descriptions.
controls whether to shut down any other Windchill RV&S commands that may be running. Some commands allow you to specify a --persist option which keeps those commands active during a client session. Using --abort with si exit is recommended for stopping all persistent views that have been specified with another command's --persist option.
controls the shutting down of the Windchill RV&S client without getting a prompt.
Specifying --noshutdown with si exit does nothing.
See the diagnostics reference page for possible exit status values.
Using si setprefs or si viewprefs, you are able to set or view the preference keys for this command.
