Batch Processing System Data

Users have the ability to add, modify, and delete system data using a batch process that is available from the graphical user interface (GUI) or the command line at the server level. All batch files require a plain-text file with a .txt or .csv extension. The file must contain a header row and data rows separated by a hard return. Each field in the rows must be separated by a delimiter. The Automatic delimiter setting recognizes common delimiters such as a pipe ( | ).

The following table lists the available Batch processes and their required attributes.
