Add 3rd Party application in the device’s context menu

In Default | 0 comments

We can modify the context menu by adding or removing. Context menus are custom menu items that appear when you right-click a device.

Ex.: We are going to add PuTTY but you should make sure that you have placed the application on WUG Server.

  1. Open WhatsUp Console.
  2. From Configure drop down menu, select Device Types.
  3. In Device Types, select the required device type you need to modify and then click Edit.
  4. In Edit Device Type, click on Menu Items and then click Add.
  5. In Add Menu Item, enter the menu item details as:
    • Display Name – The name of the custom menu item.                                                                            PuTTY
    • Enter the full path to the command that you want executed when the menu item is selected.                                                                                                                                                       C:\Program Files (x86)\Ipswitch\putty.exe
    • Anything added to the argument box is appended to the command as it is executed.                   %Device.Address
  1. Click OK to close the configuration window.
