Add-on Session Tool


You can extend the built-in list using the SDK and installing the compiled add-on. The new tools will be displayed below the built-in tool list in the menu and the dashboard. By creating your own add-ons, you gain more control on the implementation including execution, configuration and monitoring.


You can use the Add-on Manager, or download them directly from our Website.




The session script tool can be a script, a command line, or a helper applicable to a selected session. They can be configured and shared in the data source. They are listed in the dashboard under the session tool section. Those are useful when you need to execute the same command multiple times.
