I often have trouble getting powershell and other scripts to work via automated tasks. I can run them directly on the server or workstation and they work just fine, but then I run into trouble when running it as a task. The frustration is that it takes a while to run the tasks through the dashboard, so you end up running and waiting. Then it errors out so you come back to it, modify your script or config, run it again... ...more »
When you add a script check to a system, the first window lets you choose the script to add and shows the description at the bottom when you select a script. The second window lets you enter the command line and timeout. But, does not show the description or usage notes. I usually put examples of proper command line syntax in the usage notes. If a tech can't remember the syntax, they have to close that window, open the ...more »
I would like for the N-Central probe to be able to run SNMP SET commands and for these to be save as a script type object that can be run on demand or integrated into healing processes. Healing processes need to be to run the SNMP script against third party devices. For example, if I have a PoE powered wireless access point or security camera, if the connection service shows the device to be down, then I would like it ...more »
When selecting which Script or AMP to run, it would be very helpful if the search in the drop down was a contains instead of a starts-with.
After running a script or amp, they are left in the cache/temp folders for anyone to be able to access.
Rather than having to update them to obfuscate or self-delete, it would be nice if they could just be encrypted so the IP is protected.
Using custom script checks (24/7 or daily) you might need to pass some credentials, e.g. for vSphere-host to run VMware-scripts. By using the parameter-textbox you can pass these details but they will be visible in the list of checks in dashboard and reports. (screenshot attached)
It would be great to hide these information and make them avalible by editing these checks only.
The only way to schedule a script once is on the overview page.
I would like to see the script schedule is also available on the opened asset.
It's been extremely annoying that searching in the script repository works on full title, but when adding a scheduled task or through direct support, the search is only for "begins with"; ie the only way ot find what script/amp you want to run is to already know the titles of them all and what they do. if the search worked on the full title and description (and with support for tags like AMP objects), this would make ...more »
It only makes sense to patch servers that have good backups. It would be extremely useful if patch management could run dependent on external conditions such as good backups, good hardware health, etc. Example: A custom DSC script check fails, preventing patch management from running. Similarly a DSC script check succeeds, allowing patch management to run.
Now that PowerShell is open source and supported on Linux/Mac OS X, it would be nice to have this integrated to the Mac agent so we can re-purpose some of our existing scrips/use script manager to create new scripts that also target these platforms.
The option to delete a services
You can stop, start, disable etc. but not delete a services.
(sc delete servicesname)
I occasionally need to run an already installed program on one or more machines. There does not appear to be a mechanism in the Automated Tasks to simply "Run a program". Please add a "Run a program" system script that will accept credentials (optional), path (optional), and executable name as parameters and return the error result (optional). This could also be handy as a right click menu item under Task e,g, select ...more »
