How to check in the CLI that the configuration is OK and what are the main options for?​

Once the plugin is installed, log into your Centreon poller's CLI using the centreon-engine user account (su - centreon-engine) and test the plugin by running the following command:

/usr/lib/centreon/plugins//centreon_azure_management_recovery_api.pl \
--plugin=cloud::azure::management::recovery::plugin \
--mode=backup-jobs-status \
--custommode='api' \
--resource-group='GPBACK1234' \
--subscription='xxxxxxxxx' \
--tenant='xxxxxxxxx' \
--client-id='xxxxxxxxx' \
--client-secret='xxxxxxxxx' \
--proxyurl='' \
--vault-name='vault123' \
--warning-status='' \
--critical-status='%{status} eq "Failed"' \
--warning-total-completed='' \
--critical-total-completed='' \
--warning-total-failed='' \
--critical-total-failed='' \
--warning-total-inprogress='' \
--critical-total-inprogress=''

The expected command output is shown below:

OK: Backup Job 'backupjob456' Status 'Completed' [Duration: 41m 12s]

All available options for a given mode can be displayed by adding the --help parameter to the command:
