Thank you for downloading the Demo Task! Whether the Task has been provided by support, retrieved from a backup, or acquired through other external means, it's just a few clicks away from being imported and activated. After import, the Task will be set in a disabled state, ensuring you maintain full control over its activation.

Final touch…

Now it is good time to review the Task—open Task Properties, review & adjust necessary Triggers and Actions. Finally, to allow automatic execution, simply enable the Task.


During the Task import process, a new copy of the Task is created inside Automation Workshop. The Task file in the source location can be safely deleted.

Alternatively, it is possible to automatically import a Task using API. This is particularly useful when your external app or script is directly modifying or adjusting the Task XML file.

To deploy a Task multiple servers simultaneously the Task Push feature comes in handy. There are various Remote Operations available to import, run, enable, disable, or delete Tasks on remote servers that may be located on your LAN or other data centers.
