Deploy the Script

You deploy scripts from the N-sight RMM Dashboard to one or multiple devices as Script Checks (24x7 or daily frequency) or as Automated Tasks.

The following steps cover adding a Script Check and adding an Automated Task on a single device. For information about adding a Script Check and an Automated Task on multiple devices, see Manage 24x7 or Daily Safety Checks and Manage Automated Tasks.

Add a Script Check

  1. On the N-sight RMM Dashboard, select the device in the North-pane
  2. Go to the Checks tab in the South-pane
  3. Select Add Check and the check frequency — Add 24x7 Check or Add DSC Check

  4. Select Script Check
  5. Select the target script and click Next

    Scripts are grouped by default script categories (if applicable) and User Defined Scripts depending on the Operating system. You can search for a target script, and select a script to view its description.

  6. Configure any Script Parameters settings, including the Command Line for custom scripts (if required)

    To prevent the removal of the leading 0 in arguments, any part of the command that begins with 0 is wrapped in \ so the full argument is preserved when executed or processed.

  7. Enter the Script timeout period in seconds
  8. To Run an Automated Task when a Check fails, select Assign a Task after creating the Check
  9. Click Finish to save and apply
  10. If you selected Assign a Task after creating the Check:
    1. Select the Automated Task script and select Next to configure

    2. Enter any required Command Line parameters or Script parameters and select Next
    3. Set maximum execution time for the script (optional)
    4. Select Finish to save and apply

Add an Automated Task

Automated Tasks run based on the local time of the computer where the Agent is installed.

  1. On the N-sight RMM Dashboard, right-click the device in the North-pane and select Task > Add
  2. Select the script from the expandable sections that list the available scripts and click Next

    Only scripts that are uploaded for Automated Tasks and are associated with the device's Operating System are displayed.

  3. Enter a name for the task and enter any script parameters required for the selected Automated Task and select Next

    The following example shows the script parameters for the Active Directory Users Query task.
