Post Example: Iterate Over Saved Sessions

These example scripts demonstrate how to iterate over saved sessions in SecureCRT's configuration folder's Sessions subfolder.

There isn't yet a native scripting API provided by SecureCRT for accessing saved sessions (say, from the Session Manager), so the way to go about this is to iterate over the .ini files in the Sessions subfolder of SecureCRT's configuration folder, and use the full file system path information to build up a session manager path (as it appears in the Session Manager) so that you can load the configuration using the crt.OpenSessionConfiguration(strSessionMgrPath) method to get a reference to the Config object for a specified session.

These two iteration examples demonstrate not only how to iterate over all saved sessions (ignoring the Default.ini and the informational __FolderData__.ini files) but also how to export saved session data to CSV file or conf/INI file format.

Script: IterateOverAllSessionsRecursively_CSVOutputFormat.vbs.txt
Script: IterateOverAllSessionsRecursively_ConfFileOutputFormat.vbs.txt

EDIT: (22 Apr, 2020)
Added a python example (IterateOverAllSessionsRecursively_changeOptionValue.py.txt) which iterates over saved sessions, changing the host name.

EDIT: (11 Aug, 2020)
Added another python example (ChangeHostnameAndPortForAllSessions.py.txt) which changes (for all saved sessions) both the host name and the port to argument values specified.
For example: SecureCRT.exe /SCRIPT ChangeHostnameAndPortForAllSessions.py.txt /ARG hostname: /ARG port:33222 /ARG "exclude:session1|session 2|Session #3"
