Windows package actions

Use Windows package actions to perform custom operations during package installation. Actions you create in the action interface then get combined into a package that runs a single PowerShell script on targeted devices. Available actions include the following:

  • Copy, rename, delete, or move a file
  • Create or delete a directory
  • Stop, start, or restart a Windows service
  • Add, delete, or update a registry entry
  • Connect or disconnect a UNC share
  • Launch an executable
  • Pop up a window
  • Custom PowerShell commands that you've created

When configuring an action, you can click the Use variable button to insert a variable that is populated with data specific to the device running the action. For more information on variables, see Agent settings: Variables.

To create a Windows action package
  1. Click Tools > Distribution > Distribution packages.
  2. Right-click the Distribution packages category you want and click New Windows package > Actions.
  3. In the Windows actions properties dialog box Actions page, click Add.
  4. Select the action you want and click OK.
  5. Configure the action properties.
  6. Add and configure other actions if necessary.
  7. Click Save.
