Action1 5 Documentation 5 Run PowerShell Scripts Remotely

Run PowerShell Scripts Remotely


With Action1, you can assist your colleagues remotely and run scripts on multiple endpoints without connecting to them or enabling remote PowerShell.

To run a PowerShell script:

  1. Navigate to the Managed Endpoints page.
  2. Locate one or several endpoints where you want to execute a script and select More Actions / Run PowerShell.

Alternatively, select the Actions icon next to the endpoint name and specify Run PowerShell. Or click New Action on top of the page and select Run PowerShell from the drop-down list.

To create a workflow that executes a script according to a preset schedule, select New Policy. For more information, see Staying Compliant with Policies.
