I was messing around with the Automation Manager just to see what we could do with it. It's pretty cool but there's one key thing that I think would be very useful. When doing an If/Else policy, I noticed there was no way to loop back the Else control flow after it had run to re-run the policy to then continue with the "Then" control flow. This would mean you'd either have to copy the rest of your If/Else policy after ...more »
It would be helpful to limit what users can access certain Automation policies created by a company. Example: user A can see and run automation scripts 1, 2, and 3... But User B can see and run automation scripts 3, 4, and 5. Our old platform Kaseya had folder structure for procedures and access was given at the folder level. Currently if a user has access to run an automation policy or script they can see all scripts ...more »
When you get the prompt that the policy is out of date, re-saving in Automation Manager should upgrade it.
Right now it needs to be re-made from scratch
On the download ftp file object in Automation manager, if the result isn't 0, the ResultString stays empty. If you look into the logs, you have the error next to the name of te object. That is the whole point of having a ResultString output, to output the error message into this. I'm guessing this is by far the only object in Automation Manager that has this flaw. I would like to output this error to nCentral, but I do ...more »
We would like to use N-Central system variables like CustomerId inside automation Manager.
Is there a possibility to read content of xml documents? I am on the point, that I can download a xml document from a netgear temperature sensor, but I can not find an option to read and process the xml document.
any ideas into this?
Could you make it possible that when a automation script has been run we can put the output of the script into the body of an e-mail without having to mail it through a self defined smtp server. Now i use the Nofication Sussess Failed and Send task output file in Email. But this is in a zipped file and i would like to have it as the Body of the mail. Maybe you can make a output to body of nofication mail in the automation ...more »
The ability to call Custom Details into variables during automation policies would be very helpful when you are tying to filter options
When creating an automation policy, I need a way to include the customer ID and the Site and the machine id in N-central (not necessarily the net bios name) in an email that is being sent out. If i could pull this information into a variable that would be great. An email that only contains the computer name is not very useful with you have thousands of computers.
It would be nice to be able to use booleans in an automation policy with the added effect of allowing certain input parameters to only show when certain boxes are checked. This would allow for more complex and user friendly Automation Policies without the need to give the user to many options when they are running specific Automation Policies. To give a small example, I have a disk cleanup script that has multiple sections ...more »
