Search Configure mode objects:

The following CLI operations are available in Configure mode.Click a link to go directly to that topic.

  • commit– Commit current set of changes
  • delete – Delete a particular data element
  • edit – Edit a particular sub-element
  • exit – Exit from this level
  • help – Provide help information
  • quit – Exit from this level
  • request – Make system-level requests
  • revert – Revert back to the previous configuration state
  • rollback – Roll database back to last committed version
  • set – Set a parameter
  • show – Show a parameter
  • status – View status of users currently logged into CLI
  • top – Exit to top level and optionally run command
  • up – Exit one level of configuration
Configure mode can be set to either Exclusive or Private session. Refer to CLI Modes.

To exit Configure mode and return to System-level mode, enter either quit or exit.



When issuing commands in the Configure mode, you must perform a commit operation for the changes to take effect.
Any command that changes the mode or state of an object must be entered and committed separately. The examples under the set command description include the appropriate commit entries.


The SBC limits the number of set operations to commit at one time (equates to modifying approximately 100 field values). To avoid errors, issue the commit command on a regular basis to execute small batches of commands.



% set addressContext default zone core ipPeer core_peer ipAddress ipPort 5060
% set addressContext default zone peer ipPeer peer_peer ipAddress ipPort 5060
% commit

Optional arguments to include with the commit command are described in the table below.

Use the exit operation to exit the Configure mode and revert to System mode.


The help operation is a fast and simple means to learn more about the available commands and correct command syntax. For more information, refer to Using CLI Help.


The quit operation serves the same function as exit and takes you out of the Configure mode and revert to System mode.

  • alarms – Alarm Management
  • global – Global objects that are applicable Node wide
  • message – Send message to terminal of one or all users
  • oam – Operations and Maintenance objects.
  • system – System operations

The command syntax of this operation is described in detail in CLI System-Level Mode in the section also named Request Command Details - CLI.

To view rollback options and obtain an index number, enter rollback followed by Tab key. For example:

% rollback <Tab>

To rollback to the committed version dated 2012-08-21, enter:
% rollback 1



Use the set operation to create or modify an object. The objects associated with this command are listed below and defined in subsequent chapters in this guide.


The show operation displays the following objects and their attributes and is often used with set operation (see above) to view results of provisioning activities.
