Tabcmd Commands

What are the kinds of tasks that can be done using tabcmd?

  • Users, groups, projects, and sites
  • Data management, publishing, updating
  • Session management
  • Security, site listings
  • Server version information

The level of access and control depends on the type of administrative rights assigned to the person using tabcmd. System administrators can manage data connections, groups, projects and workbooks. They can add users to the groups and projects, but, they don’t have the access to alter user licensing levels. Systems administrators have full rights-including the assignment of licensing levels for users and managing the server itself. System administrators can assign some administrative roles to the site administrators to manage groups, projects, workbooks, and data connections. If the system administrator permits it, they can even add or remove site users.
