Add an extension template to insert a CLI command into Host menu

cps 7 years ago updated by Caitlin M Barnes (Product Manager) 6 years ago 1

Right now there is a great extension called Command Toolbox that inserts a host-side menu item "Command Toolbox" and when that is selected, a dialog box appears and allows you to select from a
drop-down list of up to 10 CLI commands to be issued to the selected client computers. This is great for commands that are not used too frequently, however there are other cases of frequently used commands where this process is a little tedious.

Simple example: it is fairly common to want to issue a restart command to one or a group of
selected computers. I would like to have a menu item called "Restart" which maps to the CLI command "shutdown -r". Having this directly in the menu would save three steps versus using Command Toolbox.

If there were an extension that implements this, it would then be trivial to clone that extension and edit it for a different menu item / command, as needed.

Even better would be the ability to stick such a command in the toolbar (one less click to access it), but I'm not sure if that's even possible with the API as it currently exists.
