Ad hoc Tasks

Sometimes you may want 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. In these cases, it is possible to execute an ad hoc task on the deployment container.

Permissions to run a one time tasks

As ad hoc tasks allow you to run any command on the deployment container, only organization administrators may run these tasks.

Executing an Ad hoc Task

From the environment's advanced context menu, click on Run a Task.
It will prompt you to enter the commands you desire to execute.
Enter the commands, as you would in a bash script. Separate commands with new lines.
When you are ready to run your task - click the RUN A TASK button below.

🚧

Task Timeouts

Tasks have a 30 minute timeout

Your task will be queued and executed on the deployment container, including the local cache env0 saves between deployments. You'll be able to see your commands execute in the Deployment Logs, like any other deployment.
During the task execution, all the variables that are defined in the environment will be available for you to use.
