Testing your relationship upload with the cdump option

This article discusses a command-line option for the Relationship Awareness upload tool (PLI)


Using the cdump option manually

The "cdump" option will cause the upload tool to do the following:

  • After downloading your latest configuration file and then processing your local relationship data files, the tool will dump the processed data into a zipfile with a name of your choosing.
  • The resulting data file can be unzipped using any Windows zip utility and the data examined.
  • This file contains serialized xml data and represents the data that would have otherwise been uploaded to the PrecisionLender servers.
  • The serialized data has already been hashed and masked where appropriate based on your bank's configuration file.
  • When using the cdump option, none of your relationship data is uploaded to PrecisionLender.



c:\> pli.exe -u=user -p=password -cdump="C:\PrecisionLender\data_dump_file.zip"


Setting up a batch file to create a dump file every time you upload your data


:: This next line sets the filename of the output file to include the current date and time
set backupfilename=pli_upload_result_%DATE:~10,4%-%DATE:~4,2%-%DATE:~7,2%--%time:~0,2%-%time:~3,2%-%time:~6,5%

:: This first command runs the upload to PrecisionLender

:: This last command runs the upload tool again, but sends the results to a local files instead of our server
pli.exe -cdump="%backupfilename%"
