Setting remote commands in plug-ins

Ops Center Automator Service Builder User Guide

Part Number

Plug-ins use remote commands to pass an input property to a script or command. Remote commands are also used to filter an output property from the standard result output. Set an output filter to store the value you want from the standard output. A plug-in needs one or more remote commands. Environment variables are set through remote commands.
