You can run a workflow from the Automation Orchestrator Client to run SSH commands on a remote SSH server.


Verify that the user account you are logged in with has the necessary permissions to run SSH workflows.


  1. Log in to the Automation Orchestrator Client.
  2. Navigate to Library > Workflows and enter the ssh tag in the workflow search box.
  3. Locate the Run SSH command workflow and click Run.
  4. On the Host selection tab, enter an SSH host name or IP address.
  5. On the Command tab, enter an SSH command to run.
    Note: The default SSH command is uptime. It shows how long the server has been active and the user load for that period.
  6. On the Encoding tab, specify the encoding method.

    Leave this field empty to use the default system encoding.

  7. On the Authentication tab, enter a user name.
  8. (Optional) Select the check box to use password authentication.
    Note: The default option is to use key file authentication.
  9. Enter a password if the authentication method requires a password. Otherwise, enter the path to the private key and enter the passphrase for the private key.
  10. Click Run.
