supplying arguments to a  Windowscommand line

  • 1.  supplying arguments to a  Windowscommand line

    Posted 07-17-2014 11:23 PM

    Hi,

     

    When i am executing a windows command for example:

     

    C:> choice /c abcd

    [A,B,C,D]?

    The Command prompt waits for a user input.

     

    How to supply that user input interactively through Nolio Run Command Action Item. I tried using Enter manual parameter Action item, but that is not working because we cannot suppy the parameter to the command in the first place.

    Is there any other workthrough for this problem?

     

    Regards,

    Prasanth Sinha.

    Hello

    You can try using echo command

    e.g

    Are you trying to prompt the user with a set of values to choose from on the actual agent machine where the action is running? If so then I'm not sure if there is a way. If you want to introduce user input into the flow then you can use the input actions (looks like there are three). When using these I believe it will stop the flow and wait for the user to make/provide response (via the ROC when being run as a template).

    To add the user prompted input you need to provide a User input parameter.

     

    echo <prompt A,B,C,D?>|choice /c abcd

    In general, there's no good way of getting a list of possible choices from some command, then prompting the user in RA, then responding back to the command.  Interactive prompts are not good for automation, I'd try to get rid of that altogether.
