How can I ask for a key and then use the answer in a bundle?

Hi, what would be the best way to prompt a user, take the answer to then use is in a bundle?


I am looking to build a way to promote a user to the administrator group, my approche is to build an app that you can enter a temp key that would by given to the user that call's in to the office, a support tech would generate a key and tell the user so that when the user enters the temp key the would become part of the admin group that is simple, passing the value on to the next process in line within a bundle is what I am looking for.


Thanks to any who can help!

I can't think of an EZ way in just Straight ZCM but you could write an
AutoIt Script/EXE that had a built in Prompt and then Checked the answer.

If the answer was correct, it could Exit with Error Code 0.
Wrong Answer, Tell it to Exit with 1.

Create a Preceding Action that called this bundle or script and set the
bundle to NOT CONTINUE on an error.

So if the user does not enter the correct code, they bundle will error
out but work if they do.

Craig,

Thanks for your reply, I think you go it, you understood exactly what I need! In ZEN 3 @ 7 you had macros 😞

Ok thanks again

Part of the Issue I think is that Even if you had a Macro, It would not
easily flow from one action to the next.

To avoid a "Failure" and not run, it's quite possible the Little Applet
could write out the "Answer" in a Reg File.

Then the other actions could have action level system requirements that
check for the "Proper" reg value.

Not highly secure since the System Requirements needed may be locatable
(I suspect they would be), but if the goal is to just get in the way of
the simple end user it may suffice.

ZCM also has macros, but what you want is a prompted one. This has been
asked before and is listed as an RFE, the more people that ask forit,
the higher the priority, so please let your voice be heard. Link is
last in my sigature
