Can i use bamboo to log into a remote desktop

Hi and thanks in advance, I'm new to bamboo 


I'm trying to automate GUI testing on a remote server so I need to be logged in so the WinAppDriver can understand the objects that are on the screen.  Can I use Bamboo to log in a dummy user as a task, run the script and then kill the dummy user?

Hi @Stephen_DeBow,

Welcome to the Community!

We do most of our work in Bamboo using Powershell scripts and modules.  So yes you can absolutely use a script task in Bamboo to run a Powershell script that will do a remote connection (or run a remote job) as another user.

I hope that helps!
