How to specity a Session Name and Description in a mgmt_cli publish

Jump to solution

I can't seem to find the syntax anywhere for adding a session name and description so that I can publish from the cli.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

mgmt_cli publish -s id.txt

Re: How to specity a Session Name and Description in a mgmt_cli publish

I could not find an option to set a session name and description from the publish command. It is possible to set the session-name and description prior to publish.

mgmt_cli -s sid.txt set-session description "description goes here" new-name "sessionname"
mgmt_cli -s sid.txt publish

Example:

[Expert@vmgmt01:0]# mgmt_cli -r true login > session.id
[Expert@vmgmt01:0]# mgmt_cli -s session.id show session -f json | jq -r .description

[Expert@vmgmt01:0]# mgmt_cli -s session.id show session -f json | jq -r .name
null
[Expert@vmgmt01:0]# mgmt_cli -s session.id set-session description "new description" new-name "new-sessionname"
[Expert@vmgmt01:0]# mgmt_cli -s session.id show session -f json | jq -r .name
new-sessionname
[Expert@vmgmt01:0]# mgmt_cli -s session.id show session -f json | jq -r .description
new description
[Expert@vmgmt01:0]# mgmt_cli -s session.id publish
