Adding a command

A remote task cannot be deployed until it contains at least one command. Follow the procedure below to add commands to a remote task. The following list shows the ways you can add a command to a task:

  • In the Folders view in the left pane, right-click the task and choose Add Command.

  • In the Folders view in the left pane, select the task and click the Add Command toolbar button.

  • When you create a task, you automatically get a command in the right pane. Press Tab to move from parameter to parameter. If you keep pressing Tab, a new command is automatically added to the task.

  • Right-click on an existing command and choose Add Command.

  • Right-click in the whitespace under the existing commands and choose Add Command.

    • Abort Task   The current attempt to execute the task is terminated and the attempt is marked as failed.

    • Continue   The task will continue to execute by moving to the next command.

    • Retry Command   The task is retried beginning at the failed command. If the maximum number of retry attempts for the task is reached, the command is not retried.

    • Restart Task   The task is retried, starting at the first command. If the maximum number of attempts for the task is reached, the task is not retried.
