Introduction:
Getting following error message when executing  iDash CLI command (Command Line Interface) to generate an iDash report on Linux when the report is owned by a domain user and specifying the -u option:
Missing required attribute:idash.report.run.time.qualifier 
Question:
How to specify the domain and user with the -u option when using the iDash CLI (Command Line Interface) on linux if the report is owned by a domain user?
Answer:
In order to generate a report using iDash CLI commands and the iDash object (report) is owned by a domain user (EEM\Active Directory) the following backslash(s) are required between the domain name  and the user name:
On Windows: A single backslash is required between the domain and user.
Example: %IDASH_HOME%\bin\idgenpdf -t run.report -n <report name> -u <domain>\<user>
On Linux/Unix, four backslashes between the domain and user are required. 
Example: $IDASH_HOME/bin/idgenpdf -t run.report -n <report name> -u <user>\\\<domain>
