Saving, Modifying and Executing Instructions for a ControlPoint Operation

All schedulable ControlPoint operations can be saved in an XML file as "instructions" and executed at a later time.  If an operation has parameters that are modifiable, you can modify them in the XML file before execution.

NOTE:  Currently you cannot run instructions for multi-farm operations.

Saving Instructions

To save Instructions for a ControlPoint operation:

1After specifying the parameters for the operation, click [Save As].

Save as xml

2Click [Download] to display the File Download dialog.

3Click [Save] then save the file to the local machine— that is, the machine where the browser is running—or network location of your choice.

TIP:  You may want to change the default file name to one that is more unique and descriptive.

4When the file has finished saving, click [Close] to dismiss the open dialogs.

 

Modifying Instructions

Depending on the operation, you may be able to modify some or all of the parameters of XML Instructions with valid values.  For example, while the Migrate User action only permits one user to be migrated via the ControlPoint application interface, you can run the operation on multiple users by adding them to the XML instructions.

You should not attempt to change any part of the instructions apart from modifiable parameters.   It is strongly recommended that you make a copy of the XML file before editing it, as it is possible that unintended changes can be made to tags or unmodifiable portions of the file.
