Running scripts on devices

NOTE  Depending on the Absolute product licenses associated with your account, the Absolute Reach feature may not be available.

You can use the Absolute Reach feature to upload a script to the Absolute console or select a script from the Absolute Reach library and submit a request to run the script on your Windows or Mac devices. The next time an eligible targeted device connects to the Absolute Monitoring Center, the device's Absolute agent downloads the script and runs it on the device.

You can submit a Script request from the Assets > Devices page or a device's Device Details page. You can also select devices in a device group, roll-up folder, or device report and submit a request for all selected devices. Alternatively, if you want to run a script on a large number of devices at one time, you can upload a file of device identifiers and submit a single Run Script request.

NOTE  If you want to collect user input that you can review in the Absolute console, we recommend that you use a Send Message request instead of a script. If you use a script, the Custom Device Fields may fail to be populated with the users' responses.
