Command Line Interface

You can run QCommands and XML files from the command line interface to perform CommCell Console operations such as backup and restore. Commvault REST APIs support sending QCommands and XML files as a request. For information, see REST API - POST QCommand.

To run CommCell operations through the command line, you can:

  • Select options from the CommCell Console, click Save As Script to save them as an XML file, and then execute the file from the command prompt.

  • Use the XML templates provided in this documentation for operations that cannot be saved using Save As Script.

  • Execute QCommands to perform other common operations that are not available through XML files.
