Command Server overview

Use execution commands to override the map settings or card settings in a compiled map when a map is run using one of the following methods:

  • from a command line prompt
  • from the Map Designer
  • from the Command Server user interface
  • using the RUN() function in a map rule
  • using the API

Use the map settings and input and output card settings of the Map Designer or the execution settings in the Integration Flow Designer to define map execution. These map execution settings are included in the compiled map file. Many settings compiled into the map can be overridden (or partially overridden) using executions commands and options.

Some execution commands are limited because they can only be used with a Command Server and cannot be used from within a RUN() function or using the Platform API. Also, some commands are not available on all platforms. See "Command Availability" for more information.
