    Usage

    See attached document “UCS Director – String Pack”

     

    The workflow also includes a sample Unit Test script that can be used to validate the custom task against different releases of UCS Director.  The Unit Test workflows are marked as Compound Tasks so the Test Suite task can run all of the tasks to simplify testing.
