About this task

You can also execute commands on a single device using the Commands tab in the device details page.


  1. Create and apply filters, or select devices in the Device Manager page.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the screen, select Device Operations > Execute Command.
  3. In the Execute Command window, select the platform from the drop-down list, then select the command tile for the command to execute and click Next.
    Click the three dots in the upper right of the command tile to see information about the command.
    Note: You cannot execute commands to the same set of filtered devices within one minute of the most recent command execution.
    Note: You cannot execute commands on devices with a status of "Created."
  4. In the Execute Command dialog box, enter a value for Timeout and select the unit of time (minutes, hours, or days).
  5. (Optional) If the command contains parameters, enter values for the parameters.
    Entering a parameter value is optional. Parameters are associated with the command, so different parameters apply to different commands, and these fields will vary.
  6. Click Execute.
  7. In the confirmation dialog box, click Close.
