Integrate with Zowe CLI

The CA IDMS Plug-in for Zowe CLI lets you interact with CA IDMS through Zowe CLI, a client command-line interface.
Zowe CLI is a command-line interface that lets users interact with the mainframe in a familiar format. The CA IDMS Plug-in for Zowe CLI provides the ability to execute and automate CA IDMS commands and administrative tasks.
You can manage CA IDMS by using common tools and modern integrated development environments (IDEs), and by writing scripts or programs that can be incorporated within automation for continuous integration/continuous development (CI/CD) workflows.
This plug-in is compatible with Zowe CLI and is awarded a Zowe Conformance Program badge. Licensed CA IDMS users are entitled to support for this plug-in. This plug-in does not require a CA Brightside subscription for download or use.
