The AdminConfig commands that return information about configuration elements all require a configuration ID.


Given a containment path, return all the configuration IDs that match. Can be more selective than AdminConfig.list()

raw = AdminConfig.getid( '/Node:C01N01/Server:/' ) s = raw.splitlines() len( s )


Return all configured instances of a given WAS configuration type. The sample code below will show how many DataSources are configured in this cell.

raw = AdminConfig.list( 'DataSource' ) ds = raw.splitlines() print len(ds)
