3 - Creating & Triggering Tasks

"

Going to move into creating task now and for TAS today we're going to start off with the simple windows task and really what we're going to do is issue a very basic dos command where we essentially just dump the environment variables to standard out which is really just the set command so the command we're going to execute as a set command we're going to give the task a name so sample windows task and then we're going to select the agent that you wish it to run on so for instance here we can go and we can either hit the magnifying glass which will give us a list of all agents or we could just type in the first few letters and will automatically give you a list of qualifying agents you can also go in here and give it a very descriptive summary
.
First windows task and also you can have it as a member of a group we talked earlier that group memberships are really good for reporting and also for assigning security permissions if we had any parameters that we would wish to pass or arguments we can either put them on the command line or as parameters if we had a runtime director we could use that as well here with exit codes you can specify different exit code ranges. And then you can also pass environment variables so I'm going to do a few here and I'm going to say ops wise is great and automation is wonderful we're going to add these two here and those will come a little bit later when we retrieve the standardout so these are all the really mandatory fields that you need to specify the task name where you want it to run and the command you want to run everything else here is really optional after that you hit the submit button and you'll see that this windows task has now appeared in the list with the appropriate summary so that's it for defining windows task and we'll get into launching it in just a moment.
