Sometimes you may find yourself wanting to execute arbitrary commands on your deployment container - for example, manually altering the state or manipulating a local file. These commands can be run using Custom Flows, but that requires committing the commands to your git repository, which doesn't always fit the use case. For these cases, it is now possible to execute an ad hoc task on the deployment container.
Permissions to run a one time tasks
As tasks allow you to run any command on the deployment container, only organization administrators are allowed to run Ad hoc tasks.
From the environment's advanced context menu, click on "Run a Task".
You will be prompted to enter the commands you desire to execute.
