sed 's/$/)/' filename

Open in new window

If you want to make permanent changes to the file use option -i

sed -i 's/$/)/' filename

Open in new window

NOTE: Make sure you use sed without -i first and are happy with the output.

If you want to add ) at the end of lines with that start with CreateSubscription, then command would be:

sed'/CreateSubscription.*/&)/' filename

Open in new window
