The command line interface into IPSA is known as the OIM (OSS Integration Manager). The OIM server process handles connections from upstream applications using the java API (OJDL) as well as other modules like the Topology exporter for example. It also supports a command line interface from a client which is available in the <IPSA HOME>/bin directory of any IPSA server

Warning: the OIM has limited validation compared to the UI, only experienced users should perform operations that will result in modification of the system
