You can run and test a worklet from the Automox Worklet Catalog on a device and receive near real-time results on the same screen. As part of Automox FixNow™, this Run Now option is available for specific worklets and is useful for fixing an issue quickly, testing, debugging and troubleshooting purposes.
To run commands immediately on a device using a worklet from the Automox Worklet Catalog, you must have a global administrator, zone administrator, or zone operator role where the device is located.
Your zone is under a plan that includes Worklets.
Worklets that require variables are currently not included in this workflow.
You can only use this on one device at a time.
You do not have to create a worklet policy.
Select a Worklet to use the Run Now workflow
Access the Worklet Catalog and search for the worklet you want to run. You can access the catalog from the Manage → Worklet Catalog page.
For further details about accessing and searching in the Worklet Catalog, see our documentation for details.
From the Worklet Details page, click Run Now. The Run Worklet Now window opens.
Run Now Workflow
From the Run Worklet Now window, you can define how you want to run and test the worklet.
Criteria: The device that you want to test must be connected and ready with a compatible OS. For status information, see What the Statuses Found in the Automox Console Mean.
In the Run Worklet Now window, click Select Phase to choose the phase you want to test the device for. These phases correspond to the evaluation and remediation code of the worklet. See also How to Use Worklets.
Evaluation Only: Use to test if a device needs remediation. If the exit code is 0, the evaluation is seen as successful and no remediation is required.
Remediation Only: Use to execute anything you can script, for example, enforce a configuration setting or install an application.
Evaluation and Remediation: Select if you intend to test and immediately remediate. Note that executing this way might trigger the remediation code if the evaluation criteria are met.
Go to Device Selection to search for a device that you want to run the worklet on.
Use the Search Devices field. You can enter the same search terms as for the Devices page (OS, name, tags, group, IP address, OS version).
The Available Devices list populates with devices that match the criteria for running the worklet: they are connected, ready, and have a compatible OS.
The Unavailable Devices list populates with devices that match the OS, but are not ready (for example, if they are running other processes such as scanning or rebooting) or are not connected.
Select a device from the list of Available Devices and click Run Now.
The next window updates to show the name of the worklet, the phase that is set to execute, and the name of the device.
The Results field shows the execution status of the worklet and it displays the results on completion.
