DVOCmd Command Line Program Overview

DVOCmd Command Line Program Overview

You can use the DVOCmd command line program to invoke Data Validation Option tasks from the command line. For example, you can create and run tests without using the Data Validation Client.
You can use DVOCmd command line program to schedule tests to run. You can also embed a specific test as part of the ETL workflow or as part of another process. For example, you can create an ETL workflow that moves data from source to staging, runs validation, and then moves data into the target or an error table based on the validation results.
The command line program writes regular messages to the STDOUT output stream. It writes error messages to the STDERR output stream. You can use the redirection operator to write messages to a file.
