Using the Persistent Input File
When you run pmrep with some tasks, use a persistent input file to specify repository objects that you want to process. The persistent input file represents objects already in the repository. You can create a persistent input file manually or by using pmrep.
Use a persistent input file with the following pmrep commands:
AddToDeploymentGroup. Add objects to a deployment group.
ApplyLabel. Label objects.
ExecuteQuery. Run a query to create a persistent input file. Use the file for other pmrep commands.
ListObjectDependencies. List dependency objects. This command can use a persistent input file for processing, and it can create one.
MassUpdate. Updates session properties for a set of sessions.
ObjectExport. Export objects to an XML file.
Validate. Validate objects. This command can use a persistent input file for processing, and it can create one.
The persistent input file uses the following format:
encoded ID, foldername, object_name, object_type, object_subtype, version_number, reusable|non-reusable
