Python Script - Creating a new tab/session
I'm having trouble figuring out how to get my python script started. I need to create a script that starts by creating a new session/tab. I want to make sure when you launch the script it starts by creating a new tab/session (in whatever order that should happen). I'm getting lost in the documentation on how to generate that at the beginning.

What am I missing here to get this off the ground?

Hi dougbert,

Can you please elaborate on where you are getting lost in the documentation?

You will want to take a look at the 'Session' object and the 'ConnectInTab' method in SecureCRT's Help.
I have also attached an example script, "", that you will likely find helpful.

Does this information help you to get started?

Thanks Brittney,

The Session/ConnectInTab function was what I was looking for. I've got a script working now that will read in a CSV file that contains a list of hosts and a list of interfaces that need to be reconfigured. I needed the script to connect to each host and then parse the interfaces out and perform commands on each of them and then save.

I ended up using function from the RunCommandsonMultipleHostsAndLogResults to close the tabs each host ends up opening up:

if g_objNewTab.Index <> crt.GetScriptTab().Index:

Hi dougbert,

Thanks for following up!

I am glad to hear that the ConnectInTab method worked well for you and that you were also able to make use of the "RunCommandsonMultipleHostsAndLogResults" script example!

Thanks for sharing! Keep Well! :)
