Uploadia CLI Feature
In this demo video we show the advantages of Uploadia’s new command line interface, CLI for short. (CLI = command line interface.) The video explains the process in more detail. First of all, the data for mapping must be on the system where Uploadia is installed. Mostly it is an IBM i system, so the files have to be stored in the IFS. Then the connection to the IBM i system is established and the command is executed via the terminal.
The Uploadia CLI (Command Line Interface) is integrated from version 1.5. However, a separate license is required.

Advantages of Uploadia’s SystemLink technology
The basis of Uploadia is the SystemLink technology, so users have several advantages:

- No separate permissions system and user management: thus no additional administration effort, no separate passwords, no additional potential security vulnerabilities – just install Uploadia and go!
- Compatibility: compatible with previous and future XA versions
