    Woo hoo! When can we expect this to be available on the downloads page?
  • seth_coussensseth_coussens Ninja IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭
    It's been available since the announcement this morning, maybe a caching issue on the browser? Have you been able to download it?

    Thanks Seth, you were right.

    Very nice work guys. Will be much quicker than waiting for runbooks to report their completion status. Looks like I will be redeveloping a few things :s

    Highest of fives @seth_coussens/Cireson. This is fantastic and an (intentional or not) bridge to SMA 2016 wherein workflows and scripts are both supported.

    Thanks, stretch your legs with it and let us know what you think. Please put feature requests in the usual place and depending on the active we may improve on this fairly rapidly while the iron is hot.

    @seth_coussens, I've just implemented this in my air-gapped Test environment but I can't create new scripts. I'm getting a popup:
    "Cannot proceed with no valid license key"

    My list of keys do not include this app and the app doesn't appear in the licensing settings within the console.

    I got the same thing @Leigh_Kilday - you'll need to update to the absolute latest Licensing App.

    Thanks, @Adam_Dzyacky.

    Unfortunately that's at least another day for me...
  • seth_coussensseth_coussens Ninja IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭
    Yes as this is an entirely no app the licensing app had to be updated to support it. So you will need the latest version, also available via the downloads page.
  • Is there any way to hide the PowerShell Script tab in the console for analysts that are not admins?
  • seth_coussensseth_coussens Ninja IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭
    There is not, but there is also no way for them to edit the script from the activity form. Not sure if that helps?
  • Brian_WiestBrian_Wiest Ninja IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭
    I see that some tasks were added to the User Roles. Do the analysts need Run Activity to utilize the activity in a SR?

    I am guessing that the PowerShell runs from the Management server, but cannot tell what account it is using to run. Is it the workflow account?
