Run Script - Possibly Dumb Question

Does the script have to be an actual .sh script? I just want to execute a touch command after backups to show that the backup is done and other things are allowed to happen now. Can I just pop a “touch …” into the slot where the script name goes?

Well, that failed so the answer is “a real script file.” even if it’s a silly one-liner.

The reason it probably didn’t work is because parameters aren’t supported on the script field. If the field supported parameters properly, I don’t see why any single command wouldn’t work.

As it stands right now, you need to wrap your single command plus parameters into a batch or script file.

That tracks with what I experienced.
