Use the Worklet™ option to perform any scriptable action on devices, including disabling a vulnerable process, managing native OS controls, mass rollback of patches, and moving unwanted applications.
Note: Before you create a worklet from scratch, browse the Worklet Catalog for available and customizable worklets.
Creating a Worklet

- From the main console, click Manage > Policies.
- From the System Management page, click Create Policy.
- Click Worklet > Next.
- Click the OS for the custom policy you are creating.
Note: The worklet you create should be run on a device of the same OS.

- In the Notes field, enter any notes, if required.
- (Optional) Set filters under Device Targeting, as needed.
