How to create devices and tasks

Custom Script task

The custom script allows you to run additional tasks not defined within the basic ServerView platform.  If you have a need that is not handled by the existing tasks, please contact customer service and they will be happy to help you determine how best to meet your need.  Sometimes our customer service team will create a custom script file that will perform additional tasks for you.  In this case, they would upload the file to your account using the custom script task page.
