Description Xixi 2015-02-24 01:22:56 UTC
Document URL: 
Not sure if this belongs in API Guide or User Guide.

Section Number and Name: 

Describe the issue: 
spacecmd support is one of the new major features in Satellite 5.7, need to be mentioned in docs as a supported commandline utility.

Suggestions for improvement: 
spacecmd has its own documentation as part of the tool, so maybe just mention somewhere that it's supported commandline utility as of Satellite 5.7 and a pointer to manpage/help options for more info

Thank you Dan - looks great.

Btw, would it be possible to link these new feature docs from the Release Notes Enhancements section, or otherwise *somehow* highlight these new features to help customers find them (I wouldn't have known where to look, User Guide vs Get Started Guide etc.)?

"An initial run of spacecmd requires your username and password. This opens a session ticket for the chosen user and all subsequent usage of spacecmd uses this session until it expires. Change the user and password using the -u USERNAME and -p PASSWORD options."

I think it'd be nice to specify there how long that session is - security concerns and ease of use questions.

Moving this bug back to ASSIGNED to caputre the session timeout.

Hi Tomas,

Sure, I'll try and find some time this week. It's a fairly simple fix but looks like it slipped under my radar.

Moving to 'NEW' and the default assignee to be triaged as the schedule allows.

Hi Russell,

The User Guide is now queued for publication, and should appear on the Customer Portal in the next few hours.

Kind regards,
