Integration Task: Command Line

The Command Line task allows administrators to trigger an external application from within an Integrify Process – opening up the use of the operating system as well as a variety of languages, frameworks, and tools.

Availability: OnPremise installation only.

Note: The appPool identity will require access to perform commands.  Custom applications built for our Command Line task may require programming expertise that is outside of Integrify services and support.
