    Create a shortcut/link to a Config Change Template with a pre-selected device/node

    John___

      Hello,

       

      We have a couple of devices that we occasionally run a saved script on.  The script is saved in the Config Change Templates in NCM.  This particular script has no variables.  On our NPM/NCM home page we put a user links field with links to these scripts, ie: http://servername/Orion/NCM/Resources/ConfigSnippets/ExecuteConfigSnippet.aspx?SnippetId=9 and a descriptive title.

       

      This comes in handy and works great, however when you click the link you have to select the node from the list, click next a couple times and then click execute.  Is there anyway to create this link such that the device/node is already selected?  It would be handy to just click the link and then click the Execute button.  As you step through the normal screens it doesn't pass the selected node to the URL string.. I thought maybe something like http://servername/Orion/NCM/Resources/ConfigSnippets/ExecuteConfigSnippet.aspx?SnippetId=9&NodeID=xxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx but it doesn't seem like that is happening.

       

      It's not the end of the world, and the method we have is handy as it is, but it would be nice to just click it and be done.  I'm also aware that you can save a script as a text file and then upload and execute the script from the node page, but that isn't any quicker.

       

      Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions in advance.
