Run a CLI Macro


Step 1

In the navigation bar, click Inventory.

Step 2

Click the Devices tab.

Step 3

Click the appropriate device type tab and select one or more devices.

Step 4

Click >_Command Line Interface.

Step 5

In the command panel, click the star .

Step 6

Select a CLI macro from the command panel.

Step 7

Run the macro one of two ways:

  • If the macro has no parameters to define, click Send. The response to the command appears in the response pane. You're done.

  • If the macro contains parameters, such as the Configure DNS macro below, click >_ View Parameters.

Step 8

In the Parameters pane, fill in the values for the parameters in the Parameters fields.

Step 9

Click Send. After CDO has successfully, sent the command and updated the device's configuration, you receive the message, Done!

  • For an ASA the running configuration is updated.

  • For an FTD, the device's active configuration is updated.

Step 10

After you send the command you may see the message, "Some commands may have made changes to the running config" along with two links.

  • Clicking Write to Disk saves the changes made by this command, and any other change that in the running config, to the device's startup config.

  • Clicking Dismiss, dismisses the message.
