Creating Custom Scripts within Login AM by Using Custom Variables

Creating Custom Scripts within Login AM by Using Custom Variables

The power of Login AM is the dynamic design. When I create a component I am able to fill in the settings on the top level of the component. These values can be used in Linked Values throughout the complete component from a Dynconf to a Citrix Published application.

Toplevel Component:

toplevel component

What often is forgotten is that the name and value is used as a system variable during execution of the component. This is very handy because this gives me the possibility to use these ‘custom’ variables inside a custom script.

In this example I am going to create a path from the variables SOURCEDIR and REVISION.

The easiest way to combine the SOURCEDIR and the REVISION is to create a PowerShell variable.

$APPV_SourcePath

Then we need to call the system variables in the powershell script. This can be done by using the following command: $env:<VariableName>

In my example it will look like this:

$env:SOURCEDIR
$env:REVISION

Now we need to combine all parts.

$APPV_SourcePath = $env:SOURCEDIR + '\'+ $env:REVISION

The command write-host plus the variable is a nice way to check what the outcome is during scripting. The result will be display in your PowerShell window.

Write-host $APPV_SourcePath

Some useful command for showing all system variables:

Get-ChildItem env:

I hope this information helps you in creating custom scripts within Login AM.

Scalability testing Parallels Remote Application Server with Login VSI

Recently I went to VMworld in Barcelona where Login VSI had a booth on the expo...

What was new this year is that quite a few people asked if our software is compatible with the solutions from Parallels specifically their Remote Application Server (RAS) (Datasheet).

Windows 10 Default File Type Associations and Login VSI

When Login VSI 4.1 was released, the majority of desktops were running Windows 7 and life was easy. We’d set the default filetype for an application and it would simply work. The default and industry standard workloads in Login VSI include launching and using Adobe Reader as part of the virtual user simulation. Because Login VSI doesn’t always know which version of Adobe Reader is installed, or where it’s installed, the workload relies on the file type association (FTA) for .pdf documents to be… Continue Reading

Investigating Online Application Performance with Login PI

As many companies do, we use a CRM system. Recently, I have been getting complaints about our cloud CRM system, Microsoft Dynamics, being slow. I tried to investigate this by shadowing one of our users to see what was wrong. As expected, everything was fast. 15 minutes later, the same user reported slowness again. How could I investigate this without bothering the users? Continue Reading
