Command Tasks are used to execute command lines (programs or batch scripts) from within Royal TS. Command tasks can run "stand-alone" (like a shortcut) or in context of a selected connection - which also allows you to "inject" variables (replacement tokens) to the command line (like the PING task).
The Task Dashboard is shown in the Dashboard panel when you select a Command Task in the Navigation panel.
- The grid on the top shows connections or folders which are configured to use the selected task as Connect, Disconnect or Key Sequence Task
- You can also select one or more objects in the Assignments list and perform various edit commands.
- The Task Context list shows all connections available as task context. Connections which are currently selected as task context are shown selected in the list and appear at the top of the list.
- Changing the selection in the list will change the task context.
- Click on Execute to start the selected task for the selected task context.
Since command tasks can be executed on all connections, the task context list for command tasks will show all available connections (active and inactive).
