Trigger gateway DRR via CLI e.g. apicops

Hi all,

performing DRRs in production is tedious and almost impossible due to the fact that:

  • datapower-cli are not always executed reliably (and sometimes have to be executed twice to actually be applied)

  • the amount of logs printed to console makes it almost impossible to find the results of previously executed commands

  • the amount of commands which have to be performed to achieve the result of a DRR is error prone

Thus, we suggest to include such DRR functionality as a single command in a cli tool such as apicops.

For us it is very important that such a command must NOT be executed within datapower-cli!

Such command should be executed in a terminal outside the datapower pods!

Thank you.
