  successRegex: VALUE
  command: VALUE


Execute either a command, a script or a binary even in audit mode - it supports piping.

It will:

  • report a success if the execution succeeds and the output matches the given regex.
  • report an error otherwise.

Powershell scripts exiting with non-zero return codes will be flagged as failed.

Note: the command will be executed even in Audit mode, it is up to you to make sure it does not impact the system at all.

Note: the regular expression/string to compare to the output are not anchored and are case insensitive.


To return success if process explorer is running, the command parameter needs to be

Get-Process | ForEach { ${const.dollar}_.ProcessName }

as the output of the command is a toString() on the generated objects, so you need to extract the relevant data. And the successRegex needs to be explorer.
