(Optional) Name to be assigned to the imported repository.
Note:
  • If the repository name contains any spaces, enclose it between a pair of double quotation marks..
  • If this parameter is not defined, the name of the source repository used to generate the file during export is used as the default.
  • Extended ASCII characters are not allowed in naming.
--filePath<value>

Import file containing a previously exported repository.

Note:
  • The import file must have a .dat extension.
  • Network paths are also supported.
  • If the path contains any spaces, enclose it between a pair of double quotation marks.
--overwrite<true|false>
(Optional, default = false) Specify whether the existing repository, if any, should be overwritten.
