{-i | --id} <profile_ID>
Specifies the ID of the server profile. If an ID is not specified, all server profiles are returned.

{-r | --restart} <activation_time>

  • immediate. Activate all settings and restart the server immediately.

{-v | --view} <filter>
Identifies the view to use for the returned data. If a filter is not specified, the default view is used.

You can also create custom views (see Creating custom views).

connect --url --user ADMIN --noverify
configprofiles activate -i 121 –e "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA_bay3" –r defer
