Automation automation objects automation policy tasks automation manager

Automation Manager enables you to eliminate repetitive tasks across your customer base by creating repeatable processes known as Automation Policies, using a visual "drag and drop" scripting interface. For more information, see Construct a Policy (script) using Automation Manager.

Assembling an Automation Manager Policy draws on the Automation Objects (a set of actions or tasks) library. To make automating processes easier, N-sight RMM includes the default Automation Objects listed below.

Install VMware.PowerCLI

Before using any of these VMware Automation Manager Objects, you must install the PowerShell module VMware.PowerCLI.

These VMware Automation Objects run on 64-bit PowerShell, and the module must also be added to 64-bit PowerShell.
