You can execute any script that is saved in Management Center in the Script Object list. Before executing a script, you can Preview a Script With Variables Replaced. The preview shows the script variables without committing them to a device and inadvertently causing a device configuration to change.
Scripts are automatically assumed to execute in configure mode on the ProxySG appliance. For scripts that use commands not in configure mode, exit configure mode before executing the script. Licensing commands are the exception, and cannot execute in configure mode. Example:
;;exit configure mode
;;re-enter configure mode
