Scripted Actions - Account-Level Variables

Scripted Actions - Account-Level Variables

Nerdio Manager allows you to manage Account-level Secure and Inherited variables.

Note: See Scripted Actions - MSP-Level Variables for details about MSP-level variables.

Secure Variables

Secure variables have the following features:

  • Stored in the Key Vault.

  • Can be passed to account-level scripted actions using the $SecureVars.Variable_Name variable name.

  • Only available for scripted actions.

  • This feature is especially helpful if you want to pass sensitive information to a scripted action without passing it via clear text.

Inherited Variables

Inherited variables have the following features:

  • Stored in the Nerdio Manager database.

  • They cannot be removed, but they can be overridden.

  • Can be passed to account-level scripted actions, policies, and global apps using the $InheritedVars.Variable_Name variable name.

Environmental Variables

Environmental variables are retrieved from the customer environment.

  • Can be passed to account-level scripted actions and policies using the $EnvironmentalVars.Variable_Name variable name.

  • Environmental variables are retrieved from your customer environment, so you can't modify them here.

To manage account-level secure variables:

  1. At the Account level, navigate to Settings Integrations.

  2. In the Secure and Inherited variables for scripted actions tile, in the Secure variables section, select the action (Add secure variable, edit, or remove) you wish to perform.

    • Windows scripts: Optionally, from the drop-down list, select which Windows scripted action(s) the variable is passed to.

    • Azure runbooks: Optionally, from the drop-down list, select which Azure Runbook(s) the variable is passed to.

  4. When you have entered the desired information, select OK.

To manage account-level inherited variables:

  1. At the Account level, navigate to Settings Integrations.

  2. In the Secure and Inherited variables for scripted actions tile, in the Inherited variables list, select override to modify the inherited variable.
