Action Profile Variables

It would be nice if the $servicename$ variable worked in action profiles. That way we can use $hostname$ and $servicename$ to generically restart failed services on a windows machine.

    Jonathan,

    Thanks for the feedback here on action profiles. I've opened a feature request with our product management group with your suggestion. As always they greatly appreciate your feedback/suggestions.

    Cheers,

    uptime software support

  • I’ll second this. I just went through a few hours trying to get psservice to work only to find out I had to change the uptime service to run as a domain service account (as opposed to SYSTEM). This is unsupported but seems to be working.
