Scripts you can add to the N-able N-central repository include:

  • Automation Manager policies,
  • File transfer packages,
  • Windows and macOS Scripts, abd
  • Third party software packages.

Uploaded files must meet the following requirements:

  • Scripts must be in batch file (.bat) or Visual Basic (.vbs, .vb, .vbe) format.
  • Third party software packages must be InstallShield, MSI, or Wise installers.
  • Files must not exceed 50 MB. A file reported by your operating system as 50 MB or more may fail at upload due to rounding performed by your operating system.
