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
