Adding event suppressions with the CLI by specifying a file

When adding an event suppression, you can specify its object and time properties by specifying a file that contains the required properties.  

When you specify the –f option, the add command reads the suppression properties from a CSV format file.

The CSV format file must contain the following parameters in this order:

  • instPath – The object's instance path
  • typePath – The object's type path
  • beginTime – The time to begin the suppression, in the format yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss
  • endTime – The time to end the suppression, in the format yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss
  • repeat – The type of repeat, NONE, EVERYDAY, EVERYWEEK, EVERYMONTH, EVERYYEAR

In CSV format, any comma in a parameter can be escaped by enclosing the parameter in quotes. Quotes can be escaped by using two quotes.

The Manage Event Suppression command line syntax is:

manageEventSuppression [options] –f filename add
