As with all SoftNAS API applications, softnas-cmd requires that you first authenticate with the SoftNAS server using the "login" command.  Once you are logged in, softnas-cmd maintains a simulated cookie jar that emulates how a browser interacts with a web server to maintain session security (required by the SoftNAS server).  Subsequent commands issued via the softnas-cmd CLI make use of the login session (which expires after 30 minutes).

Usage:

softnas-cmd [-h | --help] | [[-b | --base_url URL] [-s | --session_id SESSION_ID]  [-i | --insecure] | [-t | --pretty_print] COMMAND [OPTIONS]]

- disabled: this disables synchronous requests. File system  transactions are only committed to stable storage periodically.
