Post Example: Send Command With Date/Time Substitutions

An example which allows SecureCRT to automatically convert date/time substitution parameters (e.g. %Y, %M, %D, etc.) when sending a command.

For example, the following command template...
scp /filesystem/folder/backup.tar.gz  usr@server.example.com:/backups/backup-%Y-%M-%D_%h%m%s_%t.tar.gz
... would become ...
scp /filesystem/folder/backup.tar.gz  usr@server.example.com:/backups/backup-2020-10-02_111327_253.tar.gz
... if the command was sent on Oct 2, 2020, just past 11:13:27 AM.

How to get started with this example script:
  1. Download and save this example script to your local machine

  2. Create a Run Script Button/Command using either SecureCRT's Button Bar or SecureCRT's Command Manager
  3. Use your new Command/Button whenever you want to send the command with dynamic date/time substitution.
