Canned Scripts: Create Scripts for Screen Sharing or Command Shell Sessions
Create custom scripts to be used in screen sharing and command shell sessions. The script will be displayed in the screen sharing or command shell interface as it is being executed. Executing a script in the screen sharing interface displays the running script on the remote screen. The script will run in the context of the logged-in user when the session is not elevated, and it will run as the local system when the session is elevated. For more information, please see Support Session Overview and Tools.
Filter your view by selecting a category or team from the dropdown at the top of the page.

Canned Script :: Add or Edit
Create a unique name to help identify this object. This name should help users locate the script they wish to run.
Add a brief description to summarize the purpose of this object. This description is displayed on the prompt to confirm that the user wants to run the selected script.
Write the command sequence. Scripts must be written in command line format, similar to writing a batch file or shell script. Note that only the last line of the script may be interactive; you cannot prompt for input in the middle of the script.
Within the script, reference an associated resource file using "%RESOURCE_FILE%", making sure to include the quotation marks. Please note that the command sequence is case sensitive.
You can access the resource file’s temporary directory using %RESOURCE_DIR%. When you run a script with an associated resource file, that file will be temporarily uploaded to the customer’s computer.

You may select a resource file to be associated with this script.
Select if this script should be available to run in elevated mode only, unelevated mode only, or both.
If this option is checked, this script may be run even when the user is allowed only to view and not control the remote computer. Note that when the user is in view-only screen sharing, the customer receives a prompt to allow the script to run.
Note: If the user is allowed to use canned scripts, all canned scripts are available in full-control screen sharing, regardless of whether this option is checked or unchecked.
