This section provides information about local actions and the Infrastructure Management supported out-of-the-box local actions.
Local actions are actions that you can execute on the computer you are working on. In earlier Infrastructure Management versions, you had to run a command or script to diagnose or solve an issue. Now, these commands are available on the UI in the form of local actions. To access local actions select Local Actions from the Tools menu. Local actions are based on user groups.
