The Weekly TEO #8 - The First V-Blog: Task Rules

Shaun Roberts
Cisco Employee

Welcome all! I hope you are having a great fall and making your way to winter. With the release of TEO 2.2 we have many new components and new functionality for customers to use. I have decided to do a series of V-Blogs (video blogs) to help customers get up to speed on some of the new stuff. I find this will be better than doing screenshots and lots of typing. So here is the first V-Blog all about TASK RULES. This is the direct link if you do not like the embedded video: If you would like the original video, I can provide that to those who post email addresses in the comments section.

Shaun's Weekly Q/A

Q: Is there a way to automate the export/import of Automation Packs (TAPS)?

A: Yes and No. You can automate the export of packs via the Powershell CLI but we do not have any feature to allow for the automatic import of packs. The reason currently is because(most of the time) they require lots of configuration and input from an end user. The Powershell CLI for TEO can do exports and backups however.

Q: Is there a way to move Extended Target Properties from one server to the next?

A: Yes. These can be done via Automation Packs.

Ever week I will pick a handful of questions from you, the reading TEO public, to answer in this part of the blog. They can come from comments posted below or via an inbox I have setup at

The e-mail inbox will not be responded to and is not a place to send bug/issue questions, more of a place to send quick hitter type questions or thoughts about the week's blog post. The most insightful/best e-mail/comment will win "Comment of the Week" honors for the following week's blog post.

Please also let me know if you like the format of this blog and what else you would like to see/know about. Feel free to give any ideas as to future blog posts, etc and I will be happy to post them. I hope to do more how-tos, best practices, tips, tricks, and hopefully some interviews of the important people behind the scenes of TEO.

WEEKLY TEO BLOG DISCLAIMER: As always, this is a blog and my (Shaun Roberts) thoughts on TEO, my thoughts on best practices, and my experiences with the product and customers. The above views are in no way representative of Cisco or any of it's partners, etc. None of these views, etc are supported and this is not a place to find standard product support. If you need standard product support please do so via the current call in numbers (650-475-4600 or 877-55-TIDAL) or via e-mail at (please include your Cisco ID when emailing in)

Thanks to all for reading and happy automating!
