CLI script action

CLI scripts can run when an automation stitch is triggered. The scripts can be entered manually, uploaded as a file, or recorded in the CLI console. The output of the script can be sent as an email action.

Note

The maximum size of the CLI script action output is 16K characters.

In this example, the script sets the idle timeout value to 479 minutes, and sends an email with the script output.
