Action1 5 Documentation 5 Custom Fields

Custom Fields

 

Action1 offers the ability to edit Name and Comment fields for endpoints. These fields can be manually edited from the Endpoint views or updated via Run Script automation. Possible use cases include automatic population of warranty information from config files of registry, syncing values of these fields based on registry settings, setting machine type (Laptop, Server, VM, etc), flag for RDP enabled, update computer description, set Windows 11 upgrade readiness flag and more. 

In the future releases additional user-defined custom fields will be offered (expected Q2 2024).

 

Manual Editing

Go to Endpoints view and click on the endpoint to display its details. On the General tab, edit Name or Comment by clicking the “pencil” icon that appears when you hover over the name or comment. Alternatively, you can hover over these fields right in the view without going into the endpoint details.

    Script Automation

    Use the following cmdlet syntax in PowerShell scripts run via Run Script automation to modify the values of Name and Comment fields from the agent:

    • Action1-Set-CustomField ‘name’ ‘custom name’
    • Action1-Set-CustomField ‘comment’ ‘custom comment’
