Is it possible to disable an SLA via CLI commands?

    We have some SLAs that run only when requested.  We have a manual process to enable them and set the deadline.  The issue we are facing is that we need an automated process to disable the SLA until the next time it is requested.  An automated process would eliminate someone forgetting to manually disable them.   Does anyone know if this can be done via CLI commands, possibly from a batch job?

    Answer has been provided.

     

    The last example on this page: https://docops.ca.com/ca-workload-automation-idash/12-0/en/administrating/maintain-ca-workload-automation-idash/manage-idash-objects-with-cli-commands/update-users-slas-and-other-objects-idupdate shows how to update properties of an SLA through a -f file argument that has all the required SLA properties listed in a file. This file can be created through the idlist command and an example would be: idlist -t sla -i CA7InstanceName -n SLAName and redirect the output to a file and then in that file set the property as “idash.sla.enabled=false” this will disable the SLA once the idupdate command as suggested in the document is run for the relevant SLA.
