How to import a Automation TAP file via PowerShell Script

Hi All,


I want to import a Automation TAP file which includes basic process via Powershell script. I don't want to use CPO UI to import the Automation TAP file.

Could anyone please help me to get the Powershell script.

But is it possible if i want to import a general tap without target/runtime user?

You should be able to import

You should be able to import a TAP (without runtime user in it) through the PowerShell custom command-let, Import-OrchestratorAutomationPack.  You can use "Get-Help" to get information on how to use this command-let.

Import-OrchestratorAutomationPack -path "$tapfilepath"

But it's not working.

I have a few questions.

  1. Is the script run on a PO server machine?  The PowerShell custom snap-in only exists on a PO server machine (not remote console machine)
  2. I assume that $nsapidname is "CorePSSnapin", right?
  3. Does your script report any error?
  4. See if the Import-orchestratorAutomationPack command-let works if you manually run it from the "Cisco Process Orchestrator PowerShell" console.  (It's in the Cisco Process Orchestrator folder under the Start menu).

Cisco Process Orchestrator 3

Cisco Process Orchestrator 3.0 was shipped with a custom PowerShell snapin (CorePSSnapin).  This snap-in has an Import-OrchestratorAutomationPack command-let that you can use to import a TAP file.

Note: This command-let does not support all the features that the Automation Pack Import Wizard does.  it cannot import TAP that contains a runtime user object in it.
