Scripted Event Documentation - Zoom VDI AVD


Global Scripts Overview

NetApp VDS includes a library of pre-defined scripted events that can be used directly in VDS environments and/or duplicated and used as the building blocks for custom scripted events.

For this application, this article covers both the install/enable and uninstall/disable action.

Global Script Use

Built-in scripted events such as this one are pre-populated, checking the "global" filter checkbox will display them.

Global Scripted Events such as this one are read-only. They can be used as-is or the "Clone" function can be used to create a customer copy for editing and use.

The Clone button is found in the action menu on the Scripted Events page.

Add application install/uninstall activity

In order for a script in the repository to take any action, an activity must be created to associate that script with a selected trigger. In this example activity will install/uninstall this application when the app is added to or removed from the workspace (from the Workspace > Applications page in VDS).

VDS scripted events offers many other types of activity triggers such as Create Server which could be used as an alternative to the Application Install (or Application Uninstall) event type. Using Create Server would simply run this app install against all newly created VMs in VDS. Create Server and other triggers are documented and can be explored here.

Note This application will need to be present in the VDS application library. This section of the app entitlement for RDS article covers adding apps to the library.

  1. Navigate to the Scripted Events section in VDS
