In a corporate setting, it is important to take steps to prevent an individual's mistake from impacting the whole. The loss of a shared administrator password, for example, being able to remove everyone's access to a server, or even the execution of an incorrect command that drops a service and creates unavailability for the entire company. This type of case should be avoided.
📄️ Setting up your Task Manager
Task Manager requires some settings to be made before selecting scripts and scheduling executions. In this chapter we will understand the prerequisites for using the module and the initial settings required.
Through the Task Manager ➔ Tasks menu you have access to all registered tasks, as well as controls for registering new tasks and performing maintenance on existing tasks.
📄️ Access Group
Task Manager Access Groups are different from Credentials Access Groups. Therefore, the fact that a user has access to using a particular credential in Task Manager does not guarantee access to the same credential for password withdrawal or proxy session.
📄️ Running Tasks and monitoring
After all steps of setting up and creating tasks, users have access to perform tasks from shortcuts on User Desktop.
📄️ Execution Templates
Execution templates consist of the commands themselves that will be executed when performing a task. These Templates can be registered through the Executions ➔ Settings ➔ Templates menu. Register templates of type "Task Manager".
📄️ Registering a template
Templates are the set of commands to execute an activity through a plugin.
📄️ Scheduling executions
You can schedule a task to run from the task report in the Task Manager ➔ Tasks menu. Click on the record row action Schedules to access the active schedules for this task. To register new appointments, click on the footer button Schedule execution to open the registration form for a new execution schedule.
📄️ Task Manager and its actions
Now that the necessary settings have been defined, Task Manager can start to be used to manage the privileged tasks on your devices.
