Develop a Run PowerShell activity

Aaron_BoockAaron_Boock Customer Advanced IT Monkey ✭✭✭

This would eliminate the need to create an Orchestrator runbook to run (in some cases, very little) PowerShell code.  Then sync to Service Manager.  Then create Runbook template.  Then I can use the code in a Service Request template.  Let me paste in my code, and when the activity is In Progress, code is executed.

    +1 @aaron_boock - Either that or created a stored procedure err...stored powershell tasks.

    Where I'm going with this is the defining permissions around that - the most flexible thing would be to pass the current Windows creds to execute said PS (as opposed to SCSM svc account). But it's with that said, I'd personally create PS Tasks that couldn't be edited for the sake of control/saving people from themselves.

    This is what itnetx offers for PowerShell activity.

    We had created something similar by inserting the script into XML and using the workflow engine to run it. Running scripts this way was slowing our workflows considerably. I'm not sure what the issue was there, but whatever solution is provided would hopefully avoid it.

    Yes, this solution would make workflow automation much easier.

    Bit of a potential security risk with doing this, especially if analysts have rights to be able to edit the powershell in some way. Have to remwmber that these scripts will run under a highly privileged account, and there is a potential to do real damage here.
    saying that we use workflows a lot, and I highly recommend them over run books (for internal SCSM processing tasks)
