Custom Script Agent
If still you want to use Script Agent, this is the information about it:
Note: Script agents do not provide proper logging as it is a legacy agent.
The "Script Agent Builder" does not gives enough information to troubleshoot it, Use the following solution as a current workaround to disable the Script agent cartridge and re-enable.(Below information is what you can try to use to make it work)
Tables associated with custom agents were deleted SOL181456
If that didn't make it work, we may need to add additional logging to the script.
The output of the script indicates do not have any type of logging.
The script example sets variables and uses the variables in the logfile generation.
ECHO LOG [%batchName%]
To access old "Script Agent Builder" which is based on 5.6.x structure you can go to:
