Reference to system account username/password in inputs using a pathnameOpen in a New Window


is it possible to refer to a system account's username/password using a pathname instead of the System Account option in the inputs?

I would like to be able to pass as a constant (flow variable) the location of the System Account to use since I have many environments and it would be handy to just switch from one to another using a pathname as follow for system accounts:


Also, it would be possible to compose the name of the account on the fly depending on specific conditions. Say, a domain name may lead to another account, etc.

How can I achieve this behavior if possible?

Is there a way to dynamically refresh a display message flow?Open in a New Window


I'm trying to find a way to make my OO flow show the progress for a series of WSDL operations that it has to perform (connecting to a handful of devices through HPNA's API). Is there a way to dynamically display this progress onscreen?

For example, I could have a task count onscreen that would decrement as HPNA moves through the devices that need to be accessed. 

If there isn't a way to do this, is there any sort of progress bar that I could utilize with OO? 


HPOO v10.6 VBS Script execution problemOpen in a New Window


Im trying to execute remote command, but when I specify user for this command execution a get an error:

{exception=System.Exception: Could not read/parse the process return code. Please verify that the user has the proper access to run remote commands.
   at dotNETWebActions_RemoteExecution.RemoteExecution.Execute(ActionRequest req, ISession s, IActionRegistry reg);StdErr=;returnCode=1;ProcessReturnCode=;returnResult=Could not read/parse the process return code. Please verify that the user has the proper access to run remote commands. ;StdOut=;ReturnValue=0;ProcessID=6512;sessionId=new session;isSessionOn=False;Result=;}

HPOO System account which Im using is linked with windows local user, which has admin rights and command can be executed under this user from windows command line without problems.

Is it possible to set permissions for System accounts like in version 9 (System accounts -> right-click on user name -> Permissions)?

Thank you.

Run script as a root user HPSA- HPOOOpen in a New Window

Hello All,

I want to run script which is on the server and this server is managed in HPSA. I should run script as a 'xyz' user. 

I tried from SA java client, i selected runscript, root, run adhoc and at import i did su -c /path/to/file.sh xyz. The script is executed by xyz user on managed server, which is what im looking for. When i select root, it doesnt ask me for password. in SA client.

Now, i tried the same from HPOO. I choose start adhoc server script operation, and i cannot run as root from this operation. It is asking for username and password. Like i mentioned above user is root and password empty since i dont have root password.

Is there anyother operation/ way for doing this ?
