Tasks contain the deployment parameters you want to use in different remediation plans. You can also use tasks to run scripts on your servers, regardless to the Remediation Plan.
When creating a task you can use a Script, an Execution Line or both. Before creating a task, you should add scripts to your library.
Note: It is recommended to run tasks that have scripts uploaded to JetPatch itself, instead of running it from the server.
The Task library contains the tasks you have created and Built-in Tasks created by JetPatch, these Tasks can't be changed in any way.
