CDO fully supports the ASA command line interface. We provide a terminal-like interface within CDO for users to send ASA commands to single devices and multiple devices simultaneously. The ASA command line interface documentation is extensive. Rather than recreating parts of it in the CDO documentation, here are pointers to the ASA CLI documentation on
