1.3 Device Scanner CLI

The Device Scanner CLI (command line interface) provides scanning capabilities only. Unlike the Device Scanner application, the CLI cannot be used to view or modify scan data.

Users typically do not need access to the data editing features provided by the Device Scanner application. Therefore, the CLI provides an easy way for users to scan their devices and return the resulting files to you (or another administrator).

For example, you could distribute a batch file that runs the CLI and saves the scan file to a shared network directory. You, or another administrator, could then retrieve the scan file, open it in the Device Scanner application, modify it as needed, and merge it with other scan data.

Unlike the Device Scanner application, which must be installed, the CLI is a single executable that you copy to the target computer.
