Network Virtualization Command Line Interface

The Network Virtualization Command Line Interface (CLI) allows you to access the Web Services API from a command prompt.

Type nvcli <command> <parameters> from the command prompt to access the CLI.

CLI commands and parameters are listed in full in the individual CLI help topics. See Web Services Available from the CLI for more information.

You can also type any command followed by -h to receive help for that command.

Note: In a case where multiple alternatives are listed for a single parameter, you can use whichever one you prefer.

Web Services Available from the CLI

The following web services are available from the CLI:

CLI Authentication

Each CLI command requires authentication. Because authentication parameters apply to all CLI commands, they are described here instead of being repeated for each command.

Note: Commands listed as having no parameters still require a username and password.

Parameter Description
-user, -u The username of a user registered in NV Test Manager. Make sure that the user has the necessary permissions for the chosen operation.
-password, -p Password for the given user.
