Enabling XML AGENT Mode In SSH (Doc ID 2424278.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 15, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Communications ASAP - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There is a requirement to connect to the the NE via SSH using XML.

The following is the command used to connect to the NE manually:

ssh <USERNAME>@xx.xx.xx.xx -s xmlagent

Once the above command is executed, the terminal becomes an XML command prompt and XML only commands can be run.

Now in ASAP, the custom cartridge is built using the standard SSH/TELNET parameters.

When we tried to send XML commands using the standard SSH and reached the prompt as shown below:

Sending/Writing XML command got into error as "XMLAGENT" mode is not enabled.

% Invalid command at '^' marker.

How to enable xmlagent mode in SSH ?
