Propagate configuration via batch

This new idea is to request that Sterling Control Center Director allow configuration propagation, in this case from Connect:Direct (userfile, netmap, InitPams, Secure+), via Batch, and not just via the graphical interface.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

This will allow us to automatically propagate the product configuration to the multiple servers in the environment by batch. Without the need to use the graphical interface.

EDIT: To clarify, when I say via batch, I mean via API, the CLI.

    Thanks for your patience while we were reviewing this with our development team. We believe that with current Rest APIs you would be able to achieve the above requirement. However we might be missing something and hence would need to understand what "Automatic" means? Would you please point out some precise gaps with current APIs after going over the documentation?

    Thank You
