Documentum IDQL

The IDQL utility is an interactive tool that lets you enter ad hoc DQL queries against a repository. IDQL is also a useful as a tool for testing and other tasks that support an application or installation because it allows you to run scripts and batch files.

Starting IDQL:

idql(32) [-Uusername|-ENV_CONNECT_USER_NAME] [-Ppassword|-ENV_CONNECT_PASSWORD] [-Ddomain]


-n  Removes numbering and the prompt symbol from input files. This argument is used primarily for scripts.

IDQL commands:

go Executes a DQL statement and clears the query buffer




shutdown Issues a Shutdown method that shuts down the Content Server gracefully. You must be a superuser or system administrator to user this command. When shutdown is complete, the utility exists.

Each command must be entered on a separate line. A command cannot appear on the same line as a query, nor can two or more commands appear on one line.

There are two ways to execute queries in a batch using IDQL:

1. Use the input file option in the IDQL command line

2. Use the @scriptfile command
