The CDO Command Line Interface

CDO provides users with a command line interface (CLI) for managing ASA, FDM-managed threat defense , SSH-managed , Cisco IOS devices. Users can send commands to a single device or to multiple devices simultaneously.

For Secure Firewall Cloud Native devices, the CLI functionality is limited to read-only commands such as show, ping, traceroute, packet-tracer, failover, and shutdown. This is not a limitation of CDO. To make changes to the firewall, use the CDO UI to manipulate policies and objects. When the CLI interface is invoked, the bulk CLI interface screen appears.
