Validation with Pinnacle 21 Community CLI

How to use Pinnacle 21 Community CLI

The CLI (command line interface) can be used to run validations with Pinnacle 21 Community instead of using the GUI (graphical user interface). To use the CLI, you must have already installed Pinnacle 21 Community. The CLI requires Java 8 and newer versions of Java are not supported.

If you don't have Java installed on your Windows PC, you can use Java 8 that comes pre-packaged with Community. Add the following path to your PATH system variable: C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Programs\pinnacle21-community\resources\app.asar.unpacked\components\java64\bin

To get started using the CLI copy the CLI jar located at the path below and paste it to Documents\Pinnacle 21 Community

Windows: C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Programs\pinnacle21-community\resources\app.asar.unpacked\components\lib

Mac: Applications⁩/⁨Pinnacle 21 Community⁩/Contents⁩/Resources⁩/⁨app.asar.unpacked⁩/components⁩/⁨lib⁩

After you copy the CLI jar to your Documents\Pinnacle 21 Community folder, open the command line window and and set your working directory to Documents\Pinnacle 21 Community.  After that, you can use the below examples to get started!  More examples are available in How to Automate Validation with Pinnacle 21 Command Line Interface and SAS®.
