Creating a plug-in

Ops Center Automator Service Builder User Guide

Part Number

You can create a plug-in based on one of the standard plug-ins, or you can create a new plug-in that runs the commands or scripts for a step in a service template.

Note: You cannot duplicate a plug-in with the same Plug-in key name, Vendor ID, and Version Number.
  • Determine how to handle the script input properties and the method to deliver an output property.
  • If running a script by file, create the script files.
  1. From the Service Builder Home window, access the Custom Plug-in Actions menu and choose Copy to use one of the existing plug-ins as a model, or choose Create to create a new plug-in from scratch.
    The Copy Custom Plug-in or Create Custom Plug-in dialog box opens depending on your choice of creation methods.
  2. From the General tab, enter the basic information for the plug-in.
  3. From the Property tab, click the input or output property icons and then add the input and output properties associated with the plug-in. You can add multiple input properties and drag and drop within the section to change the order of the input properties.
  4. From the Remote Command tab, click Add Platform to select an Operating System. Specify the Credential Type and other plug-in details.
  5. If remote commands or the script need environment variables, click Details and then click Add to enter the environment variable name and value.
  6. Finish adding variables, then click Save.
A new plug-in is created in the Developing state, which can be accessed from the Service Builder Edit window Flow tab.
