Remote script execution can significantly simplify device administration and maintenance tasks. With this feature, you can execute scripts on remote devices without initiating a TeamViewer remote session.

This article applies to all TeamViewer Remote customers who purchased the Monitoring add-on or have legacy Monitoring & Asset Management licenses.

Remote Script execution offers many benefits:

  • Efficiency: Save time and effort by quickly running scripts without establishing a remote session.
  • Minimized Disruptions: Execute scripts discreetly in the background to avoid disrupting end-users during regular operations.
  • Bulk Actions: Perform script execution on multiple remote devices simultaneously, enabling changes across the network efficiently.
  • Rapid Issue Resolution: Diagnose and resolve problems promptly by running diagnostic scripts remotely, even without direct user involvement.
  • Enhanced Security: Reduce potential vulnerabilities associated with extended remote sessions by limiting access to script execution only.
  • Flexibility: Utilize remote script execution across various platforms and operating systems from your browser, anywhere at any time.
