About Playbooks

Playbooks in
Symantec Endpoint Security
are important preconfigured workflows that let you manage and secure the devices of your environment, seamlessly. You can execute these workflows on-demand on the devices in your environment. For example, execute a playbook on devices that are newly added in your environment.
You can execute a playbook on multiple devices at any given point of time. When a playbook executes, the actions that complete the workflow are automated on the devices.
The
Playbooks
tab is located in the
My Tasks
page of the
Endpoint
workspace. The
Playbooks
page contains two views:
  • Catalog
    : The
    Catalog
    view lists the playbooks that you can execute on the devices.
  • Execution History
    : The
    Execution History
    view lists the playbooks that are executed.
You can select the
Catalog
and
Execution History
options from the filter panel on the
Playbooks
page. When you select the filter option, the filter panel slides in and slides out.
Select the
Catalog
option in the filter panel of the
Playbooks
page to display the executable playbooks. See:
