Alerting

How to send search results of an alert to a script?

New Member

Hi guys. Here's what I want to do:

I made an alert that triggers if a new computer is found.

I want to send the results (IP MAC etc.) to my script.

I learned how to make a custom search command, but I don't know how to send the results as args. Any advice?

Why are you using a custom command? Why not create a custom alert action or script? In any case, this might help (but probably not):
