Wondering if there is a way to create the Unattended builds automatically. My goal is to be able to get a currently updated version of the unattended installer msi package with a CustomProperty1 (Organization) set at the point I want to install it.

I do not see any bindings in the extension JS API to create this, only two for the SC.installer.

If this is not possible, are there commandline switches for the msi that I can run, to set the information from https://docs.connectwise...opers/Integration_guide/ again on the go? Using this I could set c=MyCompany at install. There seems to be registry persistence there at least, and if it is a matter of running the blank .msi and updating the registry to reflect this information, that would work for me as well, though is a bit cumbersome for a simple install.

Any information regarding this would be greatly helpful.

There are no command line switches but if I understand your question correctly the below process should work.

When creating your installer you can use variables that can be set at the time of installing to accomplish this. As an example, type in %CustomOrgName% for the Organization when creating your installer. Now you can change the value of that variable to match what you want the organization to say each time you run the installer. To set the variable use the format shown below (this assumes you are doing this on a Windows PC)

SETX CustomOrg "My Test Organization"

Then run your installer. The installer will pull the name 'My Test Organization' as the Organization name. You can do this with the other installer fields as well. To automate further could create a batch file that will ask for all the values and then launch the installer.
