Scripts are essential tools for the efficient management and automation of tasks.
They enable you to execute specific actions on devices, such as running custom commands or performing automated tasks. You can easily assign scripts to individual devices or policies to ensure consistent execution across multiple devices.
Step 1 - Create your first script #
A code editor will appear on the screen.
Inside the editor, you can either create a new script or upload an existing one from your device. This flexibility makes it easy to customize your scripts to your needs.
To create a new script, use the interface options and start typing.
To upload an existing script, click “Load from file” (1) in the editor, choose your script file, and it will be ready to use.
Finally, you must assign it a name (2) (and optionally, a description), and click on (3).
Step 2 - Assign scripts to your devices #
A modal view will appear, allowing you to choose a script from the script section or upload it from your device.
You will also have the option to select the execution method:
- Once: The script will run once per device.
- Loop: The script will run cyclically at the selected time interval.
- On-demand: The script will never be run automatically and will only be offered as an optional item from Self-Service.
You can also assign scripts to policies, ensuring they apply to all devices under the same policy.
To do this, navigate to the Policies section, select the desired policy, and click on the Scripts tab. The process will be the same as when assigning it directly to an individual device.
