There is recently very nice published technote that clearly guides how to automate exports and imports of Information Server DataStage assets via the command line
One of the fastest ways to work with Information Server assets is by using the Information Server Manager GUI client or the command line tool, istool. The istool framework is the recommended method for managing assets in Information Server. IStool is located on all client and engine tier installations. The istool framework will work with assets to create an .isx file. This .isx file can be imported using the Information Manager GUI or the istool command line. The .isx format is not interchangeable with the .dsx format present in the DataStage Designer client.
