Parameter Value type Description
dbUser String Required. The name of the database user to quarantine.
quarantineUntil String Required. The date and time to end the quarantine in one of the following formats:
  • YYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss
  • A relative time (such as NOW +1 HOUR)

For more information about relative time, see Relative to NOW.

serviceName String Required. The server name.
type String Required. If the database is not IBM Z® or IMS, specify normal. Valid values:
  • normal
  • DB2Z
  • IMS
api_target_host String

Specifies the target hosts where the API executes. Valid values:
  • all_managed: execute on all managed units but not the central manager
  • all: execute on all managed units and the central manager
  • group:<group name>: execute on all managed units identified by <group name>
  • host name or IP address of a managed unit: specified from the central manager to execute on a managed unit.  For example, api_target_host=
  • host name or IP address of the central manager: specified from a managed unit to execute on the central manager. For example, api_target_host=

IP addresses must conform to the IP mode of your network. For dual IP mode, use the same IP protocol with which the managed unit is registered with the central manager. For example, if the registration uses IPv6, specify an IPv6 address. The hostname is independent of IP mode and can be used with any mode.
