You can execute a remote action on an event. These remote actions are created by an administrator as a response to specific events as required for your environment. You can perform remote actions on events that have been associated with or mapped to devices through a device alias. The device must be configured so that it allows the remote action to be executed on it.

When you use a remote action, it is issued from your local console but executed on the source BMC Infrastructure Management server or remote Cell. The number of remote actions that you can execute depends on the event type, core event, or intelligent event.


Users who do not belong to out-of-the-box user groups will not be able to view and perform any remote actions. For more information about the default out-of-the-box remote actions, see Executing remote actions for selected events Open link .

In BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management, add the user group to the cell's .mrl file manually and recompile the cell. For more information, see Creating remote actions Open link .
