Routes

Routes determine how actions run, and with which credentials. You'll need to set up a route for each way that your Right Click Tools actions will reach out to your managed computers.

Route Types

There are four route types, each corresponding to the available proxy types:

ConfigMgr Console User Proxy route sends actions from the originator's Configuration Manager console out to the target device.
To learn more about user proxies, see About Recast Proxies.

ConfigMgr Fast Channel route sends actions to computers that have a Recast Agent and are communicating over the Fast Channel. For this type of route, you'll need to ensure that the target devices fall within the route’s assigned scope and that the route is assigned a role with permissions to run the actions.
For instructions on setting up the required scope and permissions, see Configure Fast Channel Support.

Recast Agent Proxy route sends actions to the connected agent installed on the computer where the action is going to be run.
For instructions, see Configure Actions to Run with a Recast Agent.

Service Account route uses the Recast Proxy's service account credentials to run the action. For this type of route, you'll need to ensure that the target devices fall within the route’s assigned scope and that the route is assigned a role with permissions to run the actions.
For instructions on setting up the required scope and permissions, see Run Actions as a Service Account with Recast Proxy.

Edit a Route

To edit a route:

2. In the Edit Route window, change the route type, proxy, role, and/or scope and click Save.




Reorder Routes

The order of routes on the Routes page reflects their priority. An action will run using the first route that offers a successful match, meaning that the route is available and that the user has the necessary permissions to run the action using that route. The route choice will always stop at the Right Click Tools route regardless of where it is located in the list.

Newly created routes appear at the bottom of the Routes table. To make actions run using a route that is lower in the list, such as a service account route, you must move that route above the Right Click Tools route in the table.

To reorder routes, drag and drop them into the desired order and click Save.Routes



Remove a Route

To remove a route:
