After you have created the custom inventory data class, you create a custom inventory script task that gathers the custom inventory. The script task is configured with the script to gather the custom inventory and the schedule of the task.
To create a custom inventory script task, you can clone a sample script task and modify it with the custom data classes that you created. You can also create and confgure a custom inventory script task on the Jobs and Tasks portal page.
When you customize your custom inventory script, you can benefit from different options that let you easily insert a token to the script and create or edit tokens for use in the script.
For more information, see the topics about the Run script task page and the Tokens page in the Symantec Management Platform User Guide.
The process of creating a custom inventory script task is the same across all platforms: Windows, UNIX, Linux, and Mac. However, the scripting language and the logic that is used in the scripts are different.
For more information, see the topics about running a task and about task advanced options in the Symantec Management Platform User Guide.
