SMART. SIMPLE. SECURE.

Scripting should be fun again! Is that your dream? Developing scripts once and issuing them to colleagues, other admin teams or the help desk for joint use and execution.
ScriptRunner® makes all that possible. The software supports admin staff, system administrators and DevOps teams in the development, management, execution, monitoring and delegation of daily administration tasks. The simple automation of routine tasks with ScriptRunner® leads to more efficiency and higher quality, whether in the private, public or hybrid cloud.

DO YOU HAVE THE CLEAR OVERVIEW?

Systems, applications, and software for Windows are being increasingly administrated with Windows PowerShell only. This brings a lot of great advantages. However, automation and delegation is more than manually implementing and distributing scripts.
Are you already using a central platform for all activities with PowerShell in your team? Do you have transparency and control over the PowerShell activities of your IT and DevOps teams? Can you always be sure that PowerShell scripts are carried out with quality assurance and reproducibility? Are you fulfilling the IT compliance requirements for all scripting activities?

AUTOMATION IS WORTH IT.

70% time-saving in recurrent operations speaks for itself. By using ScriptRunner®, a return on investment will be achieved in less than twelve months.

PowerShell for the whole team

  Team leader | Admins  

Are you responsible for a team?

This is ScriptRunner for your team!

Your team has less "annoying" workload
Your team suffers from daily routine of unimportant things and hardly gets off the mark with important projects. Many of these can be automated. This leaves more time for new and more challenging things. This not only relieves the strain, but also improves the mood in the team, thanks to less overtime and night work.
Your team will quickly get a solution
There is no time for another implementation project but you and your team don’t even have to. The implementation of the ScriptRunner platform and first use cases take place within one day. Then the whole team can join in or immediately delegate the first tasks.
The team uses PowerShell, not just the experts
Not everyone on the admin team is a PowerShell expert and can program. This opens up new opportunities in the team. Your PowerShell administrators become DevOps and write the scripts, others in the team use them easily. It’s good for deputies during absences and holidays and also good for team satisfaction, fewer barriers and reservations.
Services in your team are standardized
Everybody’s doing it differently, everybody’s doing their best. Nevertheless, too many mistakes still happen. With ScriptRunner this can no longer happen. PowerShell scripts are controlled by policies. As a result, all activities are standardized and reproducible in use. This is a real booster for reaction time, efficiency and quality.
Generate fast results and great benefits
You’re in charge. Your boss wants results, fast and visible. You can present them to your team with ScriptRunner. Implementation on-the-fly without an additional project, immediate application in the entire team, delegation of tasks without additional effort, saving development time by using Action Packs. Fewer errors, less rework. All this immediately realizes efficiency gains and ensures a fast ROI. More satisfaction in the team is included.

 

Why administrators are using ScriptRunner

A reduced workload
Groundhog Day! Be it support cases, the permanent exceptions or recurring problems and requirements in normal operation. You can automate a large number of them. This gives you more time for new and more challenging things.
PowerShell for the entire team
Not everyone on the admin team is a PowerShell expert. Especially not at the service desk. Nevertheless, you want to take advantage of PowerShell and make scripts available to everyone. With ScriptRunner and the delegation functions this is finally easy and of course in the browser.
Delegate tasks to the service desk
Administrative operational tasks can be easily delegated to service desks or end users. Users use a simple graphical Delegate App in the browser. By completely separating the user roles from the authorizations for scripts, you implement “security by design”.
From now on develop PowerShell scripts together
So that developing scripts is not a one-way street, you have already looked around for like-minded comrades-in-arms. Now you want to develop, test, and make PowerShell scripts available centrally, so that everyone is always on the same level.
Centralize everything related to PowerShell
PowerShell is not just the console and a command. PowerShell is a scripting language for automation. However, automation needs much more; for example, ordered processes throughout the entire script lifecycle, a central repository for the scripts, as well as consistency in the application and execution of the scripts, plus guidelines for traceability and security in operations with uniform reporting. ScriptRunner is the answer.

Bridging the gap between technology and users

ROI BETWEEN 6 - 9 MONTHS

Fast results – ScriptRunner pays off. With the help of automation and delegation it is possible to perform many more standard operations in less time. With our ScriptRunner Action Packs (PowerShell-Script-Collections for typical routine activities) you have access to an effective Quick-Start help. You can perform routine tasks immediately, delegate them and thus complete them faster. According to our experience, ScriptRunner allows you to achieve rapidly progressing results from the very start.

RESULTS

  • Avoid an average of 50 to 250 hours script development time, depending on the initial situation, with the Action Packs.
  • Time savings of two to four hours per administrator and week through 100 % reproducibility of tasks with scripts.
  • Time savings of three to five hours per administrator and week by delegation of tasks to service desk or within IT teams.
  • Additional time savings due to the avoidance of setup times for interruptions, reworking as well as for additional troubleshooting potentials.

REDUCE YOUR TOTAL COSTS

With ScriptRunner, you reduce your total costs for recurring tasks and processes permanently and achieve sustainable efficiency gains. The investments in ScriptRunner and the implementation of the use cases has a fast, positive effect on the total costs for routine tasks.

Technical Information

The architecture

1 - Service Host
The ScriptRunner Service Host is the control center of ScriptRunner.
2 - Script Repository
All PowerShell scripts are stored and managed centrally in the script repository.
3 - Target System
PowerShell scripts are always policy-driven on target systems.
4 - Admin App
At the heart of the Admin App is the dashboard for control over actions performed and a quick drilldown and comparison of PowerShell reports.
5 - Delegate App
Administrators and the service desk use the Delegate App to perform configured actions. Service desk users can only access directly assigned actions.
6 - Automation Connectors
ScriptRunner has interfaces for automation with monitoring, IT service management, workflows and other applications.
7 - Report Audit
All PowerShell reports are stored on the ScriptRunner host in a circulation database for up to 10,000 reports.

You can use scripts in many ways

Implementing the application

Main scripts

Each action in ScriptRunner uses a main script that maps the specific application case with PowerShell. You can predefine the parameter values for the script or define them as proposals.
The execution of this script in the target system is controlled by the action’s policy set.
Queries for parameters

Query scripts

You can create the interactive selection for parameter values dynamically using a query script. The user can select from a display list and the corresponding parameter value is used in the main script.
You can use it with different scripts at the same time. You can also cascade queries.
Validation of inputs

Validation scripts

It is always necessary to check the input of users in the web apps forms. While simple validations are already integrated into the web apps, scripts allow you to map even the most complex validations for each parameter.
This allows you to prevent user input errors in a targeted manner.
Function library

Function scripts

Frequently used functions in PowerShell scripts can be stored in a function library. The functions can be loaded via the policy set for the action.
In the main script you can use the functions simply by calling them.
There is no need to copy identical code sections into main scripts.

PowerShell in your browser? Yes!

Admin App

Configure and test policies for running PowerShell scripts.

Set up secure delegation of actions and automation with connectors. Follow up the history of your scripts. Use cmdlets directly. The dashboard supports you in the fast drilldown with the accumulated reports. Useful filter and display options quickly get you to your destination.

So, you always have everything under control!

Delegate App

Graphical application for running scripts for service desk and administrator teams.

Choose freely displayed tabs, actions as tiles, colors, and labels. With the search you will immediately find every action. A click on a tile opens the input form, parameters can be entered and the action started. You define in the script how the result is displayed.

Tailor-made solutions for the service desk!

Self Service App

Free yourself from the same recurring tasks.

Use ScriptRunner to delegate actions to end users. Instead of asking your IT department, the end user solves the tasks himself in the graphical browser interface provided for this purpose. This speeds up processes and relieves the administration and service desk of daily routines.

It couldn’t be easier for end users!
