Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document lists the steps for installing and setting up Enterprise Manager Command Line Interface (emcli) in 12c / 13c Cloud Control.
The EM CLI enables you to access Enterprise Manager Cloud Control functionality from text-based consoles (shells and command windows) for a variety of operating systems. You can call Enterprise Manager functionality using custom scripts, such as SQL*Plus, OS shell, Perl, or Tcl, thus easily integrating Enterprise Manager functionality with a company's business process.

Using EM CLI, you can perform Enterprise Manager Cloud Control console-based operations, such as monitoring and managing targets, jobs, groups, blackouts, notifications, and alerts. EM CLI is intended for use by enterprise or system administrators writing scripts, such as shell/batch files, Perl, Tcl, or PHP, that provide workflow in the customer's business process. You can also use EM CLI commands interactively from an operating system console.

EM CLI is fully integrated with Enterprise Manager's security and user administration functions, enabling you to carry out operations using EM CLI with the same security and confidentiality as the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control console.
