Environment

SecureLogin SSO

Situation

How does the Run command process multiple arguments in the command line that include a SecureLogin variable such as $Username?

Parsing multiple arguments in a SecureLogin script when using the run command

Resolution

SecureLogin includes a Run command that will allow you to run other applications, batch files etc. from within an application script. If you use the run command with arguments that include SecureLogin variables, you need to use the correct syntax.

Use StrCat to create a temporary variable ?Argument.  Then, all the data is passed as one argument to the application as per the following.
StrCat ?Arguments ""/show"" $Username 
Run ""C:\full path to application\appname.exe"" ?Arguments

Additional Information

If you want to run an application with /show and $Username as arguments, the following syntax will NOT work;

Run ""C:\full path to application\appname.exe""""/show"" $Username
