Introduction to device tasks


Once you have devices up and running in your environment, monitoring them, managing them, and updating them becomes the priority. Appspace provides a central method for all these actions via Device Tasks.

Task templates make it easy for Network Administrators to query, schedule, and define device configurations across many of the devices that are compatible with the Appspace App. Many of the commonly used tasks are pre-loaded into Appspace for your convenience.

Appspace also provides several customized device tasks that can be downloaded from the Appspace console, such as tasks to change the default log level, update the device firmware, get or install fonts, reboot a device, and send RS232 commands.

Note

Administrator privileges required to configure Device Tasks. Please refer to the table in the Introduction to user management article.
