About the brackets

Command formats use two types of brackets. These brackets indicate user-supplied command options or data. Do not type the brackets. Type only the data inside the brackets.

Use the following brackets:

Square brackets [ ]

These brackets indicate that the user-supplied command option is not required. Precede these command options with a dash (-). For example, the Policy tool command options can include: [-gui], [-n], [-p], [-y], or [-z].

Angle brackets < >

These brackets indicate user-supplied data that is network specific. For example, Policy tool command data can include: <manager_name>, <user_name>, or <password>.
