Configuring and modifying sm and smgr using programming scripts

  • 1.  Configuring and modifying sm and smgr using programming scripts

    Hello,

    Is anyone using python or other scripting languages to perform bulk administration of stations in CM and SMGR.
    We are looking for ways to do bulk administration not through system manager, but through programs. For example, we now have Avaya Workplace and need to modify user profiles (3,000) on multiple tabs.

    Thank you for your input. Katy DeSantis

    We do this all the time at MSU.  We actually use a Java client to do the manipulations.  They have samples on the DevConnect site under the "Session Manager API" section.

    If this is a one-time thing, I might suggest exporting the stations as XML, then either doing an XSLT transformer or a simple search/replace to do the manipulations.  The XML document will have all the data in one flat file so it is easier to work with.  Some tools like IntelliJ have great XML editors that let you do complicated search/replace as they relate to nodes and not just strings.
