Take a look at the node commands here, this is generally something that would be useful for admins looking at using dashboard when they have a large number of nodes they need to add or interact with.

So for instance with reports, I’d like to be able to do “dashboard report import —path=/foo/bar”, but also be able to manipulate/list/edit/remove systems/groups from the CLI.

Admins frequently protest about having to learn Ruby/Rake with other tools, so ideally this tool should not be rake… and there should be manpage and examples on the user page ( for it.
