Additional Notes

  • The command options in the table are not case sensitive and only include capital letters for readability
  • All of the above commands options should be preceeded by "repcli cloud" in the command string
  • Active Directory-based SID authentication is required to run the "repcli cloud" commands
  • While the "repcli cloud" commands will often complete immediately, there may be other queued tasks that will complete first
  • The printed response in the command line of "Successfully scheduled request" reflects the fact that tasks are queued
